Interview with Tabitha Harding-Chestney

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was about a Super Hero called Timealater. She would save the world by changing time. I regret to say that I never finished though.
What is your writing process?
It varies. Sometimes, I just be spontaneous and write what ever is in my head. Sadly, thease stories end up being unfinished.
Other times, I plan it all out. Mind Maps, plot development, the whole thing!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
My favourite book is The Fault in our Stars. I love how John Green presents the book and it was one which made me cry!

After that is the Hunger Games, the plot is amazing!
Then the Beautiful Creature series.
Beth Reekles The Kissing Booth is a good one too!
Then Rolling Dice, also done by Reekles.
What do you read for pleasure?
I really like Science Fiction, science can be fun when put into books! Romance and Teen Fiction are then really good! I then dislike books which are too short (Which is Ironic because I write lots of Short Stories!) but I like a long, interesting one.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle or Mobile. They are both just so easy to carry round and read!
Describe your desk
Describing my desk would be a long list. It's full of so much stuff I don't need.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
My school always encouraged reading and writing. I also would visit the book shop every time I went to town. I loved the smell and looking at all the books.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing stories as soon as I could pick up a pen! It was only when I was in Junior School I started to write fiction stories.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I like looking at seeing how many people have read my books (Via Wattpad). Usually, it isn't a lot but I love knowing that someone is reading my ideas.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I guess everything inspires me. My imagination, my life, the books I read. I may want to be the character, and I know that's impossible, but I do want to create their lives. I want to see them rise and fall in life, and I like to be in control.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans are like Distant family, you very rarely see them but you want to make them happy!
