I have always loved any kind of fantasy, but lately I have been enjoying some nonfiction books and historical fiction novels.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle all the way! I do have ibooks on my phone though.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing poetry when I was five. My journals have been incessantly filled since then.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing is when someone is upset with anything that happens to the characters. I love it because that means that people really feel for my characters and that is what it's all about: To make a fantasy seem like reality. Imagination is the most powerful thing one can possess.
What are you working on next?
I am working on the sequel to Returning Home, and a historical fiction that hits really close to home.
Who are your favorite authors?
J.K. Rowling, of course. William Goldman, Jerry Spinelli, Charlaine Harris, and L. Frank Baum.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The smell of coffee. I am an admitted caffeine addict, and I'm okay with that.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Be with my family, paint, play addicting and pointless video games, look up any random thing I think about on Google, and you guessed it--read anything I can get my hands on.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
My mom is even more of a reading addict than me! She always gives me great recommendations!
What is your writing process?
JUST GO! Then go back and edit again and again and again and again. Sometimes I'll roughly outline what I want, but the majority of the time it comes to me as I go. I know point A, and I know point B, but on the road from point A to point B, every turn is unexpected and I love it. I couldn't write any other way, It would be too stiff and calculated.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes I was eight years old and it was A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks(Long before the movie came out). Even to this day I bawl my eyes out when I read it.
