When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Around middle school.
Why did you choose to write in your particular field or genre?
It depends on the story which genre it falls into, so I’m not really stuck in one kind of genre.
Do you have a special time to write, or how is your day structured to accommodate your writing?
Not really, usually when I can find time.
How do you think you’ve evolved creatively?
When you think you are done then come up with something else, you end up tossing out 10 pages of writing to write that new idea.
What have you written so far?
I have published two poetry collections: Random Chemicals and Snotty Love Poems and A Mindful Wilderness with Rubi Enterprise.
Do you work to an outline or plot sketch, or do you prefer to let a general idea guide your writing?
I generally write as I go, but I do have some of the plot in my mind. Sometimes, I write down little story notes.
What are some ways in which you promote your work?
Word of mouth and making use of social media.
What advice would you give to aspiring authors?
Keep writing and edit, revise, edit, and revise.
Can you share with readers a little bit about your latest book?
Never One is a YA sci-fi novel. It is about a teenage girl, Burgundy Hues, who is dying from a virus infection called, ‘Felern.’ She has the choice to stay in a virtual life of her own choosing for her remaining days. Burgundy struggles to find her own ‘dream life’ from endless possibilities.
What made you decide to sit down and actually start writing this book?
The story demanded to be written. I had no choice in the matter.
