First: I spelled recent “resent” in the last question I asked you. When I saw it, when you replied, a piece of me sort of died inside.
1. What’s your favourite genre to write?
Young adult. If you count that as an genre. I see it as a age group, but in a book store it’s considered a genre. So, I have to say that first and foremost I am a young adult author by nature.
But, the actual genre’s that I have most enjoyed writing in are contemporary and dystopian. To be even more specific I like writing about ‘coming of age’. I like to tell stories about those who are going through a journey of self discovery. It’s generally drama based, rarely comical.
5. Why do you write?
I write because it is the only thing I can see myself doing. It’s the only thing that makes me truly and irrevocably happy. It is the only thing I do that makes me feel as though I have a purpose.
Writing validates my existence. I know that when I am gone my words and thoughts will remain. Even when they are destroyed and forgotten. I will have given something to the world that was from the deepest part of me.
I write because I want to reach someone in that way that only books can. Reach them through my pages and tell them that I understand them, without having to meet them, and that that are not alone. Because books have saved me time after time from that lonely feeling. And I owe them at least one lifetime to say thank you.
I can’t say enough on why I want to write. It’s not even a want anymore. It’s a need.
8. What’s the farthest you’ve ever gotten with one of your ideas?
That would be my current project. My dystopian novel is at 60k (plus some) and there will be a book two. Maybe three… four… who knows how many. It’s the first story that has truly demanded me to write it and I love the feeling.
