How did you become an author?
As someone who spent the majority of my teen years writing fanfiction, it was eventually suggested to me to create my own characters and write my own stories, so I did!
What made you want to become an author?
A bumpy road with career paths. The first occupation I ever wanted when I was younger was to be a doctor, which is so not me now. Then as I got a bit older, I wanted to be an actress, performing only ever in one play where I played Violet in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for an audience of probably 20. Then I wanted to be a singer, having grown up writing lyrics. I’d perform into the karaoke machine when I was home alone and even designed my whole cassette tape, but alas, the American Idol audition just never happened. Then I realized I wanted to be a dancer, learning the entire choreography from High School Musical in a single afternoon. At the age of 19, I became a competitive ballroom dancer, winning everything from ribbons to pin badges to competition certificates, and even became a trainee instructor at Arthur Murray for 6 months. Later, I found a passion for making magic, working for the Walt Disney Company for a non-consecutive 3 years.
Throughout all this, I was always writing, whether it was songs, fanfics, blogs, or books. But it wasn’t until I was at my last straw in retail that I realized the best job for me was to be an author, thus my 2020 goal of representation and publishing was born.
Wait, you wrote a book?
I wrote 9 and counting!
What inspired your book?
I was watching a TV show that had a gay storyline and I hated the way it was being written, so I decided to write my own.
Well, where can I get the books?
Not sure yet! Still working toward finding a home in publishing for my series.
How old are you?
I was born on September 13, 1994 at 6:17pm, which makes me 26 years and something minutes old.
What authors inspire you?
Chris Colfer, for the way he pursued his writing until he made it as a published author.
