I write because I have characters that won’t keep quiet. They range from lost boys who want to save the world to teenage girls at breaking point who rise to more than they thought possible. Because it’s what I know, my protagonists are Korean.Through adventures or character driven stories, I get to rewrite my childhood as many times as I want and hope that it will give readers time to pause and reflect on theirs.
