Dorice Grey enjoys writing as much as reading. She has been writing since she was ten years old.
She is dividing her time between her friends and family and her stories. And she has many more stories to tell! Do you plan everything or just let the story flow? After trying both techniques I've come to the conclusion that is better to do them both. So I start by planning something and when I write them down the ideas change.
Do your characters ever want to take over the story?
No. Not really. I don't let them.
What is your favourite food?
Macaroni and cheese. And write better with a full stomach.
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
I usually wake up at 7:30; 8:30 in the morning. So I can say I am a morning person. I like to think my days are longer this way.
Where do you dream of travelling to and why?
I would like to see Hogwarts and every world from my favourite YA books.
Do distant places feature in your books?
My book The Accident talks about heaven and hell. So I guess you could say yes.
Do you listen to music while writing?
I can think better surrounded by silence, so no. I don't listen to music while writing. But sometimes I was writing even in class in college.
Could you tell us a bit about your latest release?
My book The Accident talks about Miruna who meets a mysterious young man which seems to follow her everywhere. Soon, she realizes that she is the only one who can see him, but he is not a ghost and she's pretty sure he is not just the result of her imagination, either. He has a secret mission. Will she find out what is all about with this man and what is he hiding?
Is there anything you would do differently?
If I had the necessary money I would have published my book on paper.
Who, or what, if anything has influenced your writing?
When I was a little girl and I learned the alphabet the first thing I did was writing a fairytale. Next I started reading very much so my mind developed new ideas. Also listening to music gives me ideas but that doesn't mean I listen to music while writing.
Anything you would say to those just starting out in the craft?
What are three words that describe you?
Dreamer, Curious, Ambitious. All three of them helped me to publish my book.
What's your favourite book or who is your favourite writer?
I like books written by Richelle Mean. I read every last one of them and I can't wait for the next one.
Blurb of your latest release or coming soon book.
I started writing The Accident a few years back on a whim just because I wanted to write something. My hand was twitching and then after the first part the idea flourished. That's how The Accident was born. It took me some time to finish it and then correct it. But when it was done I couldn't wait to share it with the whole world. I like mysteries so my next book is a fantasy mystery, which talks about a very special boy constantly on the run. He has a secret and some dark men are trying to catch him. Problem is, he is not even sure what that secret is.
List of previous books if any
