|Notable works||Barbara the Slut and Other People (2015)|
I did work at Planned Parenthood between college and grad school. For me, anywhere that I worked or anywhere that I've come to know intimately is a great place to set a story because it's a place where you know all the details already, and you don't have to make them up; you can just borrow them.
I think the quickest way to get me to do something is really, 'You can't do that.' And I'm like, 'OK, I will make that happen.'
I got into writing in college… well, in elementary school. But in college, I started writing seriously and had a professor who read my writing and gave me permission to pursue that as a real effort and time-consuming effort.
I had this idea that I would write a companion cookbook to 'Barbara the Slut.' The recipes would be like, 'Put the Lucky Charms in the bowl.'
