Interview about UNPACKED by Aly Coy

1) What made you want to write UNPACKED? When I was backpacking around Western Europe, I felt alone in the experience and felt the need to document it and share it. When I left Josef in The Pyrenees (spoiler alert–I do leave him), there was so much to–unpack–that I jumped right into a creative writing course to get the stories down while I still had detailed accounts. I've been writing since my last year in high school, with a story about how I had an abortion that year. It was a traumatic time in my life but writing the story helped me process it. I work through trauma by writing and sharing stories with others who have similar experiences. 2) What do you want people to get out of the book?
