What are you working on?
I am currently working on five projects. I’m working on:
- Jennifer Jones: Vampire Hunter book three
- A Star is Born (the first book in The Star Runner duology), a book following the last forty years of the one of the most famous female rockstars in the world
- The House of Topaz and Sun (The first book in The House of Topaz and Sun trilogy), a YA fantasy about two fairy’s, a witch, a shape-shifter, and the Crown Prince, who go on a journey to save the fairys’ dying mother, who happens to be the most powerful evil fairy in the world.
- Girl Gone Good, the first book in an untitled NA romance series.
- The Perfect Princess, the first book in a NA/adult romance series
When did you start writing?
I don’t remember, to be honest. I know most writers are like, “Oh, I can remember my first story and how old I was, and everything about it.” I can’t remember much about that. All I know is that in kindergarten, I’d spend recess telling my friends stories I had made up. Does that count?
Where do you find inspiration?
Music and dreams are where a lot of my ideas come from. But I also write stories that I want to read. Sometimes I’ll get an idea and think, “Man, I’d love to read that book.” and if I can’t find a book like that, I’ll put it in my list of ideas. If I read a story and hate the ending, I’ll put the ending that I want in my list of ideas.
Did you go to school for writing?
No. When I was in elementary school I took a few writing classes, but I stopped going to them in fourth grade. So, besides those and what I learned in English in middle and high school, I’m self-taught.
How often do you write?
I’d like to say I write every day, but that just isn’t true. Besides that, I don’t think you need to write every day to be a “real” writer. I try to write about four to five days a week, but it doesn’t always work out that way. There are times where I’ll write a whole book in a month, because I’ve been writing every day. But then there are times where I’m not feeling well, and I’ll write two or three days that month. So, I don’t really have an answer to that question, but this was my explanation as to why I don’t have an answer.
What genres do you write?
I’ve written a few different things under different genres. Kill the DJ was a YA dystopian sci-fi book. Beauty’s Only Skin Deep was a YA psychological thriller. Election Year 2050 was an adult dystopian political book. Bad Reputation was a contemporary fiction, and the JJVH books are YA horror. My short stories are mostly adult horror and crime books.
TL;DR- I write in a bunch of different genres.
How do I get an ARC to review?
