Tell us a bit about yourself
Well, I’m a scientist and a biomedic. I have one super cute fur baby who likes to stay cuddled with me while I read or write. And I’m seriously addicted to books and coffee. And baby yoda.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I actually wanted to be a professional napper. But yes, since I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a writer. I’ve been writing poetry for over ten years now. And I’ve been playing with different story ideas for a really long time.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
The forty thieves. Both the disney version (with Aladdin) and the original one.
What are you working on now?
I have two big works in progress.
The first one, Stolen Hearts, is a part of the Mischief Matchmaker Series. My book is a retelling of the forty thieves. But I gave my own twist to it. That’s a M/F paranormal romance.
My second WIP is called Trapped By Honor, and it’s a little inspired by Mulan, both the Disney movie and the legend. It’s always been my favourite movie and once I got wrapped in RH, the idea just came to me.
Do you have any quirks while writing?
I’m very easily distracted by anything, so I usually need peace and quiet. And I’ll get inspiration in the weirdest of places so I always have to have something in hand when an idea hits.
What are your hopes for the future?
I really want people to like my books. I want to be able to keep sharing my stories with others, have them take pleasure into reading them the same way I take pleasure in reading other people’s stories.
I also really really want to attend a book convention, both as an author and as a reader. Being able to connect with authors I admire, to get to know readers. That must be an amazing experience and I really want that.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
I’m pretty new too, but I think the most important thing I’ve learned is that it’s okay to ask for help. It’s okay to not know things. The people in this community can be so amazing. They’re super supportive of each other and they are always willing to score a minute or five to answer questions and give advice. I’ve learned a lot from them.
Do you have anything to say to your readers?
Having readers at all is already a dream come true, so the only thing I have to say is thank you. From the bottom of my heart. You make dreams come true.
