Q: Tell us a bit about your story.
A: One intoxicating New Yorker, a lifelong curse, and a splash of magic make an unforgettable midlife cocktail.
Q: Why was this story important for you to tell?
A: Joy, magic, and laughter felt like a valuable and necessary direction to go in with everything we've gone through over the past few years.
Q: What is something you hope the readers take away from your story?
A: If readers can glean joy from it, if they get that magical feeling, if they laugh out loud at least once, I'll be happy. And if reading Mandi's story makes them happy too, even just for a little while, I'll have thoroughly accomplished what I set out to do.
