Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am from North Carolina and currently in college, pursuing a degree in English Literature. I have self-published two poetry books.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
In The Arms of Weakness, my own pain inspired this book. I have always fallen in love too fast and I don’t know how to let go of someone so I started writing poems indirectly at the people who hurt me.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not really, I can only write at night though.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Stephen King is one of the authors that made me want to start writing. I am a huge horror movie fan so watching his movies and reading his books made me want to do the same. Unfortunately, I don’t have the story-telling abilities he has so I started writing poetry.
What are you working on now?
Right now, I am not working on anything.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I use Instagram mostly, that’s where I post my poetry.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t stop promoting. Also, don’t compare your work to others and don’t think you’re any less of an author because you’re not a best-seller yet.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
“Somethings take time”, I think a lot of people assume just working hard will get them where they want when it’s also allowing the universe to do what it needs to do.
What are you reading now?
I am re-reading a book I read in high school, “Hush Hush” by Becca Fitzpatrick.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I hope to get more readers and continue putting my work out into the world.
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?
Can I bring the entire series of “Vampire Kisses” by Ellen Schreiber?
