My talented friend Christine Sneed asks thoughtful interesting questions. I appreciate the opportunity to share more about I wrote All the Girls in Town, some thoughts on writing like an actor, living in L.A., and the state of women's rights in America today.
"I wanted each woman to explore the why. Why after everything had each fought to keep Peter? Shame, embarrassment, low self-esteem, need for validation, loneliness, addiction, bad childhoods—all of these unhealed reasons that women can’t see when someone isn’t good for them and then why they stay.
Dani, Red, and Sasha’s interior lives represent the many women’s voices that I’ve heard, including my own. So much internalized shit that we don’t even challenge, that we take as our reality: what we’re supposed to look like, who we’re supposed to love, how many things we’re supposed to have accomplished at a certain age. Screw that."
