JJ: Tell us some more about yourself including your website and where we can find you on social media sites:
CC: I grew up in a family of 4 brothers and 3 sisters. All 3 of my sisters write poetry. All of my brothers, except one, draw. I'm the only one that does both. I've always loved writing, but mostly just focused on poetry. I wrote the Ericka The Puppy series last year for my 2 year old daughter, who is biracial. I wanted her to be able to understand issues she is sure to have in the future. She enjoys the books a lot!
