Personal FAQ

Who are your favourite authors?

That’s a difficult question! There are so many amazing authors out there that I don’t think I could name them all. At the very least, my tastes generally lay in the various sub-genres of Fantasy. So, to suit that, here are a couple of authors whose work I enjoy reading:

  • Ilona Andrews
  • Jeaniene Frost
  • Jenna Black
  • Mark Lawrence
  • J.K. Rowling
  • Sarah J. Maas
  • Lemony Snicket

You’ll also find me reading some mythological tales, crime stories, manga, as well as books about the history of Ancient Egypt. Overall, I read a bit of everything.

What are your favorite books?

My favorite books? Now that is a hard question. Since I listed my favorite authors before, here’s a small list of book not written by those authors, but are books that I greatly enjoy reading.

  • Sign of The Crescent by Debbie Federici
  • Asphodel by Lauren Hammond
  • Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke

Some childhood favorites are Green Eggs and Ham, Matilda, and Charlotte’s Web.

What inspired you to become a writer?

I’ve always had a fondness for reading, so at a young age, I started scribbling down little tales of my own. I still remember the first story I wrote, but that’s a story for another day!

There was a phase when I stopped writing and then when I was twelve, I started writing fan fiction about some of my favorite mangas and animes. It helped me learn and sparked that interest in creating my own stories. By the time I was fifteen, I moved on to working on original stories.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Where do you see yourself in the future?

I see myself as an author. Traditionally published or self-published doesn’t matter. I see myself getting out there and having people who enjoy reading the tales I weave with my words, who enjoy the characters I breathe life into, and who feel the emotions of these characters as I put them through terrifying hardships.

I will write for as long as I can. I will hold on to this passion for as long as I can. Plenty of ideas are in my head. In the coming years, they’ll begin to take form.
