In high school, I was lucky enough to have a big group of girlfriends that have really inspired a lot of the stories in my books. I'm still close with my friends from that time, so it's never very hard to put myself back into that place, that voice.
Well, a girlfriend once told me never to fight with anybody you don't love.
It is rare to find a business partner who is selfless. If you are lucky it happens once in a lifetime.
