1. How did you get started writing?
I’ve been writing since elementary school, but I started really focusing on it through fanfiction.
2. Out of all your books, which one is your favourite and why?
This is the first I’ve officially published.
3. If your friends were asked to describe you in one word, what would it be?
Brilliant (I asked)
4. What is your favorite thing to do outside of writing?
Reading and learning
5. What do you love most about the genre you write?
History is a passion of mine so getting to research and learn while writing is extremely fulfilling.
6. What do you want readers to take from your books?
I would love for them to experience joy. If they learn something or open their mind to something, too, that’s a bonus.
7. Describe yourself in 3 words.
Loyal, kind, quirky
8. What made you decide to write in your current genre?
I love history and I have stories to tell inside of me.
9. What does your writing space look like?
I write wherever inspiration strikes.
10. What’s the one piece of technology you can’t live without?
Probably my phone.
11. Do you find it hard to kill off your characters?
I follow where the stories lead. I may mourn them, as my characters love in my mind, but that is the end of their part of the story.
12. How much of your characters are based on your traits or someone you know personally?
My characters often take on traits of people I know.
13. What are you working on now? Can you share a teaser of it with our readers?
But Daisy understood. Art and artifact thieves, while not common, were clever. And for a collection like theirs that hadn’t been fully vetted and valued, the loss could be incalculable if they were taken.
14. Is there one genre that you have not written in yet, but would love to try writing?
15. What do you do when a flash of inspiration hits you at an inopportune moment?
I keep a notebook in my purse or I write the ideas in my phone.
16. What keeps you going while writing?
Candy and caffeine
17. What’s next for you?
Teaching history, finishing my Master’s, and publishing my first novel.
