Our next author for Foster and Author Week is the lovely
Let's get into it!
Of all the characters you have written, who is your favourite, and why?
Red from my Haunting Fairytales Series. She has a tragic past. She’s so different to any of my other characters and really sees things from a totally different perspective. She’s not afraid to be herself, but she hides a dark secret inside of herself (literally).
Who are some of your favourite authors?
I love Richelle Mead for her unique writing style. Her books are easy to follow, and although I had doubts when I saw the title and cover, it surpassed all expectations and Vampire Academy was an engaging series. Philippa Gregory brings history to life and I am a self-proclaimed History buff so eat her books up. Obviously J.K. Rowling and Stephen King, because, well there are not enough words to describe how much I love their writing!
What is your favourite thing to do when you aren’t writing?
I used to love horse-riding and would love to start that up again. Asides from that, I enjoy designing things on my laptop, having through provoking conversations with my family and friends, reading amazing books, and researching abandoned creepy places and conspiracy theories.
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
‘Minds are like parachutes. They don’t work if they’re closed.’
Do you have a favourite thing to eat or drink while writing?
Tea, milky with two sugars. I don’t really eat much while writing. I am so focused on what I’m doing.
