Enjoy!

JL: Jumping right into your new release, El, where did the idea of Gabrielle in Thaw come from? Is she based on any real models/actresses?

JL: You reference both Rent and Hamilton your books. Tell us a bit about your love of musicals

But I’ve been a fan of theatre—and musicals specifically—since my grandmother took me to see Annie on Broadway when I was 8 or 9. I’ve seen some amazing shows since then, and listening to Idina Menzel in Wicked, or Lin-Manuel Miranda in Hamilton, is pretty incredible.
