Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Tori and I’m twenty one years old. I was raised in a small town and still live there. I am majoring in art education. I have written two books, Broken Souls and Christmas on the Beach, and am working on writing a third book.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The name of my latest book is Christmas on the beach, and it is available both on its own and in The Snowman Anthology. It was inspired by Jekyll Island, a small island in Georgia that is like a second home to me,
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I often write everything down on notebook paper first before typing anything up.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Stephanie Meyer and J.K Rowling are very influential, though I tried to keep things on a lighter page for my most recent book.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on The Skeleton Lady, which will likely be a combination of horror, romance, and possibly thriller
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My facebook page
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t give up if one publisher doesn’t like your work, believe in yourself and ,submit it to as many publishers as possible or publish it yourself.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Do what you love and what makes you happy. You don’t need to live your life to please other people as long as you’re happy with yourself and who you are.
What are you reading now?
I was rereading a book called Shiver, but I haven’t had much time for reading lately besides my textbooks.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I want to write as many books as possible because I have a whole list of ideas, so I will just try to continue with my writing and improving my skill.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
I would take a book with instructions on how to get off of the island, a book on how to get rich after leaving the island, and probably The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman because I really love that story.
