The first story I ever wrote was when I was around ten years old. It was severely embarrassing. In school, I used to love writing creatively in Language Arts. At home, we had a Windows 98 computer (yes, with the dial-up Internet), and one day I just started typing in a word document. The story was in my point of view and it was fictional. In the story, I had tons of siblings--who were all celebrities--and people I actually knew like my family and people from my church were also incorporated into the story. My mom being a snooper caught me writing and she found it hilarious. She printed it off and showed it off after church the following Sunday, which was highly embarrassing since some people from the church was actually in the story.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans mean a lot to me, which I know that's what most people say. For someone to personally message me and tell me that they are a fan of mine is mind-blowing. All I do is write the best stories that I can and sometimes I feel a bit insecure about my writing so having someone tell me that they loved my recent book or that they are a fan of mine is genuinely uplifting to my soul.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The main drive in my life is to become successful. In the future, I want to become an Obstetrician/Gynecologist and hopefully still maintain a writing career. I get up because I know there are certain things that I need to do to accomplish my goals. During the school year, I have to force myself to get up for an eight o' clock class so I can make outstanding grades. If you miss a class in college then it's usually crucial and ultimately devastating, so I make sure I'm on time for class and ready to learn so I can have competitive grades to get into medical school.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing, I'm usually doing schoolwork or just watching Netflix. No, seriously. That's all I do. I may hang out with my friends and family for a while, but when I'm not writing I like to relax and just do me (not literally of course).
