When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Drawing or surfing through Facebook or DeviantART.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I'll browse through Wattpad.com, or FictionPress.com, or I'll do a Google Search.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Not exactly the first one, but I do remember the basic plotline of an early story I wrote with my sister when I was about 7 or 8.
What is your writing process?
Think of something to write, a scene or whatever, and write it, as if it were the finished version, with details and such. It's not very effective, as the inspiration fizzles out before I finish a story, but that's what I do.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I'm going to skip over the kids' books I read as a child and say that Harry Potter was the first story, since it was the first one to make an impact. Very powerful, and inspiring.
How do you approach cover design?
I come up with some ideas and then draw a few, sketching the concepts and whatnot. I'm a very visual person, and I often will stop writing to draw my characters and scenes as they appear.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read fantasy, romance, teen drama, sci-fi...pretty much anything, if it's interesting.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My desktop computer, or my Android phone, since those are the only devices I have. I'll often opt for my computer over my phone because it's faster.
Describe your desk
Square-ish, particleboard with a wood veneer, with a shelf/drawer area on the lower right side...and on top of the desk I have my computer, some tech-y nicknacks such as power cables and speakers and such, a glass of water in the corner for when I get thirsty, and some pens and pencils scattered in front of my monitor.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I moved around a lot when I was younger, never staying in one place for more than six years, which was the longest. I don't think it influenced my writing much because I didn't really experience the places I lived in; I was a rather reclusive child.
When did you first start writing?
Very early in my life; my mom always encouraged me to write. I probably started when I was about 6 or 7.
