Tell us about yourself and your books.:
My book is a sassy, campy book, but has heart. My novel is called High School Queens, and it’s a story about these high school kids trying to keep their secrets from getting out. It’s about what’s more important to you, your view on yourself or other’s views on you. It’s supposed to give you a good laugh, but make you think.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not really, but I usually get the weirdest cravings when I’m writing a book. Writing this book all I wanted was pizza rolls.
What authors have influenced you?
John Green, Rainbow Rodwell.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Just be so insanely obsessed with your novel. Be open to criticism, but it shouldn’t steer you from wanting to finish the project.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
It was my creative writing professor in college. He said to make sure everyone isn’t a hundred percent evil or a hundred percent good. We are all flawed.
What are you reading now?
The beginning of everything by Robyn Schneider.
What’s your biggest weakness?
Teen wolf fan fiction.
What is your favorite book of all time?
Great Gatsby or Giovanni’s Room.
What has inspired you and your writing style?
Realty Tv. It has made my dialogue seem so real. Music also inspires the mood I get into when I’m writing.
What are you working on now?
So the book is a first in a series. I’m editing the last two books in the trilogy. Plus a new novel about me and my gay friends.
What is your method for promoting your work?
Taking absurd photos of me with my novel in social media plus ads with Amazon.
What’s next for you as a writer?
A book called The Homosexual Thirst Trap. It’s inspired by my gay friends and it’s gonna be another campy book with heart.
How well do you work under pressure?
Really well actually. If I don’t put that pressure on me then I’ll never get the book done.
How do you decide what tone to use with a particular piece of writing?
Honestly, it’s the music I’m into. I need to also be in a good spot in my life or bad spot to see where the novel will go.
