Interview with Bridget Perron

What are your five favorite books, and why?
Hm, that's a tricky one. I like a lot of different books, but, 'Malice' by Chris Wooding (and its sequel, 'Havoc') were always favorites of mine, along with 'The Graveyard Book' by Neil Gaiman, and one of his other books called 'Coraline' (which we all know and love), and I also liked Lewis Carrol's 'Alice's Adventures In Wonderland'. I also enjoyed the Harry Potter series (who didn't?) and the novelizations of Nolan's 'The Dark Knight' Trilogy.
What do you read for pleasure?
A lot of different books, really. I like to browse the library in my school to see if anything really catches my eye, and usually, there are quite a few things that do.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Well, I usually read on apps on my tablet, or I read on my computer. I do have an old Aluratek EReader, but, I hardly use it as I do most of my reading in the evening, and the screen does not light up.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I actually have not published any books, but, I'm hoping that this site, and possibly Amazon will be able to help me with Self-Publishing.
Describe your desk
Messy, covered with multiple things, leaving no room for me to sit at it and write, unfortunately, until I clean it off (which I swear will be soon).
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in multiple places, mainly Winnipeg, Manitoba, and a small town in Ontario called Crystal Beach. I currently reside in Morris, Manitoba, and I assume I'm still 'growing up' here, as I am only fifteen years old.
When did you first start writing?
When I was probably about ten years old. I wrote a lot of Harry Potter fanfiction (I know, I know) and then got into a lot of Batman fanfiction and other types as I got to about the age of twelve and discovered a site called Wattpad.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well, my latest book at this time would have to be 'Sinister' and, to be honest, I really have no idea how I thought of the book, I really just had the idea when I was trying to figure out what I was going to write for NaNoWriMo 2013.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Knowing that there are people who actually read my work and enjoy it.
What are you working on next?
I had a dream a while ago, which gave me the idea for a novel called 'The Five' which is a more paranormal/horror/thriller type book, focusing around demons and such.
Who are your favorite authors?
I really like J.K.Rowling, and Chris Wooding, along with Neil Gaiman, and... wow, there's too many to name, really.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My alarm clock, honestly.
