Share with us the story behind “Sugar High.” What inspired you to write it? What do you hope your readers will feel after reading it?
I felt and oftentimes still feel very much alone with my condition, so I wrote the book in hopes that sharing my story and being as vulnerable as I could might help someone else feel less alone with whatever they’re going through.
Why did you decide to donate proceeds to Life of a Child Foundation?
There is nothing more important to me than working towards a world where everyone with type 1 diabetes, no matter where they live, has everything they need to survive and achieve their dreams.
