When asked if her work makes a statement, serves as satire, or is just escapism, she says this:
Am I here to change the world? Ultimately, sure, that’s what you hope to do. But you can only do that by telling real, powerful, fun, page-turning stories. If you’re just a ranting didactic writer, that’s super boring. I’m first and foremost a teller of tales. What a lot of folks don’t want to admit is that being a teller of tales is also a very powerful position. You get to show people how the world is, or could be. You get to inspire change, or inspire people to question what’s normal. Every storyteller has that power, whether or not they want to admit it. I just own up to it, and I’m very aware of the images I put on the page, and the people who power my stories.
