Interview with Quinn Stark

What are you working on?
For now my main project is a book about friendships. It revolves around an asexual and aromantic boy and the ghost of a girl. About how they become friends, how they save each other and everything about what they learn about themselves in this very unusual friendship.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read a lot. But going to a boarding school that gets hard. Life in a dorm is full of different adventures and activities. I never really get bored at school.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up partly in an apartment with my mom and partly with my dad in his house. The last was the place where I finally started writing more frequently. After moving in with my father I came out of my dark hole and found myself in books.
What is your writing process?
Write, read, write. In the end it's always 'Just Write'.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
At school: my roommate. She can get very annoying. But she can't ever top my dad who is a real nuisance when I need to get up in the morning at home. Eventually, I do it all for a cup of coffee.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually through someone else's good review.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. I had a Russian friend in playschool and I wrote animal stories for him.
How do you approach cover design?
Sadly, I am one of those people who says 'don't judge a book by it's cover', but do the exact opposite. I think the cover of a book reflects the book and the author, which is important for me. I'm a picky reader.
What do you read for pleasure?
Mainly fantasy/paranormal. I'm a fairy-tale lover.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My phone, since I carry it everywhere.
Describe your desk
My desk is quite small, but I have all I need on it. My desk is facing the balcony and over it I can sneakily people-watch when I run out of ideas. A small but frequently used trail passes my balcony, so a lot of different people and groups walk by it. On my table there is a small box for folders and notebooks + pens. Because I love to write in a notebook as much as on the computer.
When did you first start writing?
In playschool.
