Tell me a little about yourself!
Ah, well, I don’t like to talk about myself. Does this count? But seriously, when I’m not working or writing, I’m either traveling, or taking care of my horse, or reading, or snowboarding whenever time allows it.
Is there a title for your current WIP? If so, what is it?
Into the Light
When did you realize you wanted to be an author?
I wanted to be many things when I was younger. I’m the type of person who’ll try anything once, but I’ve always written stories in my head, I was just never brave enough to put them on page. It took being part of this community and the encouragement of my friends to finally decide to publish. So far I’m glad I did. 🙂
While writing, do you have music on or do you need absolute silence to concentrate?
Music, I can’t write, do anything that needs my concentration really, without music.
Who do you look up to as an author?
Do you sneak real-life events into your books?
So far I haven’t, but I probably will. But some of my characters definitely have characteristics inspired by the people around me.
What was the most challenging part about writing your first book?
To keep going. To not let doubt and insecurities prevent me from finishing it.
Have you ever co-written before? If so, with you?
LET’S HAVE A LITTLE FUN
You just won a million dollars, what is the first thing you do with it?
Pay off my student loan, then give half to my parents.
Your go-to movie when you need a pick-me-up?
Ah, I don’t really have a movie, but I’d watch an episode of The Good Place. That always cheers me up 🙂
It’s Karaoke night and you’re singing your favorite song, what is it?
Right now, it would be Callum Scott’s You Are The Reason
If there was a soundtrack to go alongside your FIRST book release, what album would it be?
Well, my main character was inspired by the song Scars to your Beautiful, so I’d have to go with Alessia Cara’s Know-It-All Album.
Your life just became a film, what’s the title?
What’s your BIGGEST pet-peeve?
People who chew audibly. Drives me bonkers.
List three things you’re terrible at.
Singing, cooking, relationships lol
List three things you’re great at.
Being that one person who’ll always tell you the truth when you need to hear it but don’t want to hear it. Riding/training horses. Procrastinating.
You’re the main character in the LAST book you finished, who are you?
Samantha Kingston in Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Tell me something you don’t think a lot of people would know about you.
I have yet to find a home. I move around too much to have roots.
FINISH THE SENTENCE
The best thing I’ve done in my life is move abroad
When I was younger I wanted to be a veterinarian
The last song I listened to was If I Were a Boy by Beyonce
The last book that made me cry was Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Never have I ever been in Australia (boring, but I couldn’t think of anything. I’ve done a lot lol)
Three things I can’t live without are coffee, coffee, my animals
Love at first sight doesn’t happen outside of books. (sorry!)
If I could change places with one person, it would be anyone who travels the world for a living.
I literally can’t stop looking at this cover! It’s stunning!
Falling Through Darkness releases May 4th!
