I’ve been writing since I was ten years old, writing fan fiction short stories, until I wrote my original novella in high school. I’ve read writers Digest books about Description, Dialog, Characters, ect. Went to writing workshops. And in ’17 I self -published an urban fantasy New Adult book.

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is “The Chronicle Gate vol. 3 Neo Earth” the third book in my middle grade trilogy. I was inspired by many things like “Star Wars” and “Harry Potter” and “The Books of Umber” trilogy.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
My writing habits are when I go to work, I bring my kindle with me and write during lunch and breaks, and on the weekends. I don’t really have a set time. I just write when I can.

I like using written word media, Fussy Librarian, TCK.com has a bunch of websites. It’s fun to go through but tiring too.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
I know you’ve heard it before but just keep writing, keep editing it and find a good writer’s group or beta readers, search online. You’ll find your tribe.

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?
That’s a hard one but I’d have to say some of “The Harry Potter” books, and I really enjoyed “Inkheart” trilogy.
