I’m a self taught artist from California, USA, I’m 35 and I am married and have 2 kids under the age of 2.
How do you get to do a book like this and what happened to your dream of doing a children’s book?
My dream was to do a children’s book but when I started college I realized I couldn’t do anything to help those children with the illness. I thought of the whole thing as a big joke and when I started a book about that dream I was sure I messed up so I decided to take the book somewhere else.
What makes this book different?
My goal is to show kids that illness is not an excuse and the only way to deal with it is to love it.
Who are your artists?
My artists are my friends from art class. I teach a painting class at my university.
What happened to the idea of an artist-less book?
It took me a while to figure that out but now I know I can no longer make that statement.
You have been nominated four times for the National Book Award. How do you feel about all the nominations?
I don’t really care about the nominations anymore. It’s not what it used to be anymore, I don’t see any way out for us.
What advice can you give someone just starting out in writing and publishing?
I tell anyone that when you start out your dream it is to change the world and to change the lives of others. There is no excuse or better way to do that.
What is the significance of your name?
My name means “One who has been to the top”.
