Name: Tagan Shepard
Publisher: Bella Books
Reason you started writing: These people kept talking in my head and the only way I seemed to be able to get them to shut up was to write their stories down.
When I write it down like that it sounds… strange, but all writers are a little bit strange so I’m sure that’s fine…

Name something you're proud of in regards to your writing: My second book, Bird on a Wire, was my way of moving to the next stage of grieving for my mother, who passed in 2008 from breast cancer. We were extremely close, but some of the things she said when I came out will haunt me forever. Bird on a Wire was my way of having those conversations we never got to have. It was a deeply personal book, and I was elated when it won the Goldie. It was honestly one of the best moments of my life. K. Aten notes: It was a beautiful moment for those of us watching too. Big love, friend.
