“Growing up in Iowa, there was so much space to do so many things, and we didn’t have the technology that we have right now, so we used our imaginations, and so we were outside constantly. I kinda hung up with the group of people that today would be known as ‘geeks,’ ‘nerds.’ I was a geek; I’m still a geek. And we would create these worlds. We would run into a cornfield, and that was the warfield of some ancient war that we were fighting, or we would go into an apple orchard. We would be Robinhood and Merry Men and Women, and we’d a barn that we’d go into, and that’s where our galactic magic happened, and we would take over worlds and space. That’s when I started imagining things at about 13, and that when I got serious about it and started jotting down notes of some of the experiences that we had as a group together.” – Collette Jackson-Fink, on her childhood and early interest in writing stories.
