Do you plan everything or just let the story flow? 

A bit of both. I have a plan, but it often changes as I write.

Do your characters ever want to take over the story? 

Yes! But I love character-driven stories; it makes for a more emotional connection, I believe.

What is your favourite food? 

Probably Monolian BBQ

Are you a morning person or a night owl?

Definitely a night owl!

Where do you dream of travelling to and why? 

Japan. It’s my minor in college right now and I’ve always had a fondness for it. I also used to teach ESL to Japanese students in Japan over Skype through DMM Eikawa.

Do distant places feature in your books? 

Not yet, but I hope to add in different locations in the future (as soon as I’m able to travel more).

Do you listen to music while writing?

Yes, instrumentals!

Could you tell us a bit about your latest release? 

It’s more than meets the eye—it’s definitely more than a typical fantasy young adult novel. It’s about two sisters who get involved in a curse that cuts far deeper than they’d ever imagined.

What have you learned about writing and publishing since you first started? 

Too much to write down, haha. The main thing I’ve learned is to read and write daily, especially through writer’s block, and never give up.

Is there anything you would do differently? 

Maybe take more time with some of my previous books.

Who, or what, if anything has influenced your writing? 

Everything in my life influences me. Writing-wise, I’ve been influenced by writers such as J.K. Rowling, Christopher Paolini, and Daniel Handler.


Anything you would say to those just starting out in the craft?

Don’t give up! Things take time! I’m still in the uphill battle, but it takes so much time and energy.

What are three words that describe you? 

Creative, passionate, and caring.

What's your favourite book or who is your favourite writer? 

My favorite book is The Paris Wife.
