  • Where are your books sold?
  • Which book of yours should someone reading this buy first?
  • Coffee or Tea?
    • Both! I drink coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoon.
  • How many books do you try and read a year?
    • Around fifty, sometimes it’s more, sometimes it’s less.
  • What genre do you write in?
    • Fantasy or Paranormal.
  • What genre would you like to write in one day?
    • I would like to write a superhero story or maybe a sci-fi.
  • Do you read your book reviews? How do you process them, good vs. bad. Do you give some more weight than others? Like Amazon vs. Goodreads reviews.
    • I read every one of my reviews. I process them all equally. If I get a bad review, I consider why the person disliked my book. If it was because of personal preference, I tend to ignore those. But if they point out a valid flaw, I take note and try to do better next time.
  • Does your family support your career as a writer?
    • Yes, wholeheartedly. I don’t know if I would have even started self-publishing if my parents hadn’t encouraged me. My grandmother reads every single one of my books as soon as they come out. I am very lucky to have so much support.
  • What is your favorite Character you’ve written?
    • That’s a hard one. All my characters are real to me. It would be like picking a favorite child.
  • How long were you a part-time writer before you became a full-time one?
    • I still am a part-time writer as I work my way through school.
  • How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have?
    • Too many to count. I started writing stories as soon as I knew how to write. I have an entire drawer filled with old, handwritten drafts written by ten-year-old me that should never see the light of day again. I guess I’m too sentimental to throw them away.
  • If you couldn’t be an author, what would your ideal career be?
    • A veterinarian. I would love to work with animals.
  • Do you Indie Publish or Traditional Publish? Explain if you’d like.
    • Indie published. There were a few reasons why I chose to self-publish, one being my age. I didn’t think a publishing house would take me seriously because I was a teen. I also didn’t want to lose any control over my books.
