Expressing myself creatively through word play is what keeps me in alignment with my soul, my purpose, and my sanity.
Sometimes, I land in autofiction. In this realm of reality mixed with imagination, I jump all over the metaphorical universe, converse with non-human characters, and engage with abstraction so I might create a place for the narratives I feel within me. I move through speculative fiction, too. The relativity of time and space is best explored here.
Other times, I show up in creative nonfiction: I write about real travel and cultural exchange. I reflect back my identities that have ebbed and flowed within language, geography, and social boundaries.
