Interview with Alana Topakian

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in both Centerport, NY and Raleigh, NC. That influenced my writing because I got to see many different sides of people, and gain various experiences.
When did you first start writing?
Honestly? I've been writing since the day I could pick up a pencil and form letters.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The freedom it comes with. I can write about anything, create anything! It's amazing and freeing.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The promise of a new day, and everything (both good and bad) that comes with it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
With my family and friends, enjoying life.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wish! I have really bad memory though, so if I did then that would be literally miraculous.
What is your writing process?
I don't really have a specific "writing process", I just write and see where my words take me.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My iPad! I mean I have a Kindle Fire, but my iPad is much more versatile.
What are you working on next?
A new book, it's actually coming along really well! It's the Supernatural world mixed with the Modern world.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I just wing it!
