I don't think I'm complicated at all. I'm not political, and I'm not trying to be diplomatic. I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings, and I don't say bad things about people. There is no agenda. There's no trying to fool somebody.
When I write, I try to think back to what I was afraid of or what was scary to me, and try to put those feelings into books.
