What do you want readers to learn about Carrie and New York City?
New York is a tough place to be as a young person. Carrie really has to go after what she wants; it isn’t handed to her.
Why do you think people connect with Carrie?
I always say that she’s an everygirl, but I don’t think that’s true. This is a character who is an individual — she’s a quirky character who gets into trouble, and she isn’t afraid to be herself in all these different situations. She’s not afraid to explore who she is.
