Irreverent – because my characters always are.

4. What turns you off?

The sound of my kids laughing.

A photographer.

After Dark Question: Who is your favorite Star Wars character?
At the moment, my favorite character is: Kylo Ren. I find him intriguing, I want to know his story. He’s angry and powerful…but at the same time very sad.
