Q + A
1. Where is your favorite place to write?
I really love waiting until everyone has gone to sleep, and the animals are tucked in so that I can write when it is absolutely silent.
2. Which book influenced you to become a writer?
Honestly, I’ve been writing since I was about seven. It was a way to deal with my tumultuous childhood. I just didn’t know I wanted to be a writer until I tried everything else.
3. You have a strong social conscience, how does this reflect in your writing?
Everything I write touches on not bullying, acceptance, awareness of each other and our different classes. Whether it’s my fantasy series, or my newer steampunk themed books. Kindness, looking out for each other, acceptance, and looking beyond social norms are a huge deal to me.
4. What stimulates your writing muse, coffee, tea, chocolate, another?
I drink coffee so that I can drink coffee, so that I can write. I write so that I can drink the coffee and do the things, and chocolate just helps me be happier while I am drinking the coffee, doing the writing, and accomplishing all the things.
5. Which author do you most admire?
This will always be J.K Rowling, not because of how successful her series is, but because of where she was when she wrote it and who she is now. She is the most incredible woman to me, and I respect her a great deal. I can only hope to strive to accomplish half of what she has.
