Tell us more about your book! What inspired you to write it?
Franklin: After writing my debut novel. Six Years Black was my second favorite choice. I like telling stories that dive into the darker, sensitive, or heavier aspects of books. I'm always compelled to write rare characters so making my character blind was challenging but rewarding.
If you could relate to any character in your book, who would it be and why?
Franklin: This is a short story, so I do not have too many characters. However, Syble, love her dark sense of humor.
