Thank you for visiting the land of Darcyville and the soon-to-come Judepocalypse. I've had an absolute blast bringing these characters to life, and I hope you enjoy diving into their worlds. To tell you more about me, I'm a stay-at-home mom and have been for close to thirteen years. On Friday, the 13th, 2008, Darcy Walker started speaking to me, and at times her voice became larger than my own. She's gaffe-prone, irreverent, and the quintessential teenager; and hopefully you find a little bit of yourself as you flip the page. Darcy's gifted beyond the norm, but certain circumstances in her past have made her live her life and think in a certain way. A way many don't understand, but if there weren't Darcy's in the world, then many injustices would never be righted. Personally, I have a special place in my heart for people that are wired differently--who try to put their square-peg mind through society's round hole. My greatest wish is that they never give up, own their flaws, and embrace what makes them unique. And above all...laugh. People that make a big dent on humanity, in my meager experience, have always been wired differently from birth. Darcy is one of them. She lives in a world where down is up and white is black. A world where she struggles to make sense of everything that's around her because she doesn't miss anything. She's a verb--with an angel on one shoulder and a little devil on the other--but the biggest thing about her, is the heart of gold in between. Thank you Gigi Siguenza for capturing exactly who Darcy Walker is in your original work below!! xoxo AJ
