What inspired you to create this website or entity?
I created this website to promote my debut novel, Ashes of Fiery Weather.
How does your website or entity represent or contribute to the local community or borough which you represent?
I grew up in Brooklyn, New York. There are six New York City firefighters in my family, my father, four uncles and my cousin. My novel is about the women of a Brooklyn, New York family of firefighters. It moves through time, from 1897 to ten years after September 11. It represents the Irish and Irish-American community that played a pivotal role in developing Broooklyn's resilient, working-class character.
