When did you first start writing?
I have always been a creative person who was fascinated with books and telling stories. I always engaged in some kind of imaginative play in which I could share the stories of my dolls, stuffed animals, and various toys. I began writing short stories in elementary school, which blossomed my love for writing and storytelling. My first foray into sharing my writing with others was through writing fanfiction. Writing fanfiction has helped me grow as a writer and has given me the confidence to share my words and stories with others.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love getting into the minds of my characters and bring them to life. I also like to connect with my readers at a personal level. I want my characters to be flawed, genuine, and honest. I want my readers to find something in them that they get inspired by or identify with. I also want to share a good story that will make my readers laugh, cry, swoon, or melt.
