Interview with Natalie Graham

What's the story behind your book?
My book - Broken Ever After, is set in London, England. It is about a young girl of 18, Olivia, who has had a crush on one of her school teachers. Rather quickly you find out that he feels the same for her, but there is someone out there to make her life a living hell so can their relationship survive? Well, you'll need to read it to find out.
What inspires you to write?
Many things. My mood, the music I'm listening to or the film that I'm watching, life experience or even something that I've seen in the street.
When did you first start writing?
As a child. I used to love to write short stories and discovered a love for writing longer stories a couple of years ago.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
With my family, filling an addiction for American TV or reading.
What do you read for pleasure?
Anything. I love all kinds of books but my favourite genres would be new adult or dystopian.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I like to use iBooks on my phone or iPad. Sometimes I'll use the Kindle App on those devices too.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I follow a lot of blogs and see what they are recommending. I've been recommended a lot of good books by some of my friends too. I also like to check out the best sellers lists to see what catches my eye.
What is the greatest joy of reading and writing for you?
The escape. I love nothing more than opening a book and being completely consumed by a story. The same goes for writing. I love just sitting and seeing where I can take myself as I get lost in my own stories.
What are you working on next?
The sequel to my first novel. It currently has the working title of Ever After 2.
