Goodreads asked Joyce Yvette Davis:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Joyce Yvette Davis The answer to that question is simple: Writing! With words I create a world where I have a certain amount of control about what happens. Why do I say a certain amount of control and not complete control? Because when you have well-developed characters in your story, the characters will sometimes dictate what will happen to them. Alenka was such a character. I had planned a different outcome for her in my book, but her voice took over, and a good writer will always let their characters determine their own future.
