Dahlia Adler is an editor by day, a blogger by night, and writes at every spare moment in between. She lives in New York City with her husband and their overflowing bookshelves.
When did you first start writing?
I've been writing since I was a little kid. I was very influenced by Sweet Valley High and Baby-Sitters Club, books where girls hung out with their friends and had fun and got to do things that seemed so cool to me as a pre-tween. I honestly never thought I'd have the guts to share anything I wrote with the world, though, so I didn't actually pursue publication until I was in my mid-twenties!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I think college is such a fun and unique time in life, and I really wanted to write books set there, but it was something traditional publishing just wasn't doing nearly as well as indie authors were. I'm also very interested in the business side of publishing (and I work in publishing in my dayjob as well), so I was excited for the opportunity to learn many more aspects of it. Definitely the right choice for me!
