What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Butterfly Sisters?
This book is about two sisters–one, a creative, and the other, an academic. It’s inspired by the two sides of me. I am a creative but was raised an academic, and what I found was that it takes both sides of me to fulfill the purpose in my life. I wanted the sisters to learn the same thing. Like a butterfly emerging after transformation, we need the struggle to find our wings.
