When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I chill, listen to music, exercise, go round to a great friend of mine Aimee's house. I have to go to school. I shop online a lot.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I look at reviews and newspapers and blogs
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Not really, but I'm sure it's tucked away in a cupboard some where
What is your writing process?
I plan out stuff on a mind map, then I write my story, sentence by sentence on my white board. Then I rub bits out and change them to embellish it. When I'm happy with it, I type it on my PC.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I think it was How much I love you, something like that, my mum and dad used to read it to me. Until I was about 9 I used to tell my mum and dad just how much I loved them before I went to bed.
How do you approach cover design?
Randomly!

I like them because they're all inspiring and beautifully written I try to write my books in a similar way. They all could be real and as for Guinness world records they are real!
What do you read for pleasure?
Magazines and blogs mainly. I like reading recipes seeming I like to cook and I like reading a mix between fiction and non fiction
Describe your desk
Messy! Three draws, lots of pencil pots! More like a dumping ground!
