I’ve always enjoyed reading and writing but in high school I discovered Maya Angelou’s books and they gave me a passion for writing. First poems and then stories.
My friend Tara Benham who is also an author told me they were looking for more people to be included and she thought one of my stories would be a great fit.
My story is about a girl named Grace who is part of a group of people who call themselves the Pack. They rebel against the government and the plans made to “make a better society.” Most of my characters just come into my mind and won’t leave until I tell their story.
I think it’s the mystery of the unknown that pulls people in. There are no gray areas, any possibility can be explored.
Harry Potter because who wouldn’t want the chance to go to Hogwarts!
Short stories are kind of my thing, and I enjoy retelling fairy tales with a twist. I have a Jack and Jill story that I’ve been writing for a while that’s close to being finished.
Probably both. I try to plot but sometimes the characters don’t need or want my input.
Reading or watching movies and shows.
Just write what’s in your heart and don’t compare yourself to others. You won’t always believe in yourself so find someone who will believe in you when you can’t.
