1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you into writing?
I’m a 19-year-old girl who started writing at the age of twelve. I published my first book after I turned sixteen in 2019. I currently live in OH with my family. What got me in writing was when I had a sudden realization that I should write my own books. All I knew was that I loved reading, and thought I should become a famous author like the ones I read. Now that I’m thinking about it, it was an awe-inspiring moment that set me on my writing career path.
2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?
Well, for me I either have to be in the writing mood or I will typically write in the afternoon as I’m not a morning person. And I can write in just about any place.
3: Where do your ideas come from?
My ideas come from everything around me. Such as books, movies, people, places, etc.
4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?
I do a mixture of both. For books I’ve been writing a long time, I like to plan it out if I don’t have a particular word count I want to accomplish.
5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?
I write in fantasy, sci-fi, and adventure. I write in those genres because I love reading those genres. And because those genres are just the easiest to write.
6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?
That is a tricky question. I really don’t know. I feel like my books would be more animated than live actions.
7: Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?
I read every single day, even if it means reading five minutes before I go to bed. My favorite authors would have to be Brandon Sanderson, Rick Riordan, Shannon Messenger, and Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
8: What book/s are you reading at present?
The books I’m currently reading are Spy Family number 6, Dune Messiah, and Cytonic.
9: What is your favourite book and why?
My favorite book would have to be A Star Named Vega because I finished it in one sitting. I absolutely loved the characters, storyline, and the world-building Benjamin J. Roberts created.
10: What advice would you give to someone thinking about becoming a writer?
If you’re becoming a writer, just know it takes time to craft your skills. And if you ever publish, make sure you have your book edited beforehand.
11: What are the best Social Media Sites for people to find out about you and your work?
Here are my Social Media handles for people to find more about me and my work below,
