What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Sharing parts of my life with others: a feeling of communion.

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
food. nature. sunshine. writing. music.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
preparing food. spending time in nature. going for walks. watching videos. researching about health/healing.
What is your writing process?
First I realize/feel that there's something I need to say/share, then I write.
When did you first start writing?
I've always enjoyed writing but I began publishing in 2015.
How do you approach cover design?
I do it myself because I immensely enjoy the process of creating covers.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I mainly read non-fiction, so they'd be books about health/healing that helped me in some way.
