When did you start making zines ... and why?

about 3 years ago. i thought it'd be a cool project for us. i knew we could do it. it's like you see "art" or a band play, in this case, old zines, and you think, "wait, we could do this", so we did. its been great and people have been nice and supportive.

Why do you think independent publishing is important?

it's important to be able to write/create whatever you want. it's critical to have an outlet to be able to express yourself. there are no rules, and there's something really special about that.

What is your biggest challenge in making zines?

we do one every month. i work full time, frankie is in school, sometimes she's at her dad's, and life stuff in general. it's tough at times. i don't know how long we'll do it. or maybe we will have to do every other month? as frankie gets older though, it will only get better, but things will be busier. so, not real sure. we will do it as long as we can, as long as we want.

What else do you want people know about you or your zines?

we want people to know that our zine is basically a slice of our lives. you can "come in, or stay out". we are growing and learning and fighting back and speaking out and loving and caring and trying our best to be strong and positive.
