Every time someone asks what inspired me, I think of something new, because that first book is a sum of so many books you read. Today I think about the Choose Your Own Adventures series that was popular when I was a kid. Those books made me so anxious! The horror of knowing that one decision, by nature, will impact and limit future opportunities. So many years later, here we are holding our phones, embarking on countless consequential adventures defined by our choices.
