Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a recent graduate, artist and graphic designer. Big Bad Beautiful is my first book I have shared with the public, but I have one more being edited and there are several others that I have written in the past to help me better craft my style.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Big Bad Beautiful, a post apocalyptic, science fiction adventure. The story is a nightmarish combination of dystopian fiction and the classic Red Riding Hood fairytale.

Stephen King, Dave Eggers, Jonathan Stroud, JK Rowling, Dean Koontz.
What are you working on now?
A coming of age, horror novel called California Dark. The two houses featured are the ones I grew up in.
