How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I really enjoy the coming-of-age issues that YA focuses on, and I love the paranormal because it has the ability to take things we’re all afraid of in real life – intangible fears, and turn them into physical monsters which can be fought and defeated.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Every book I write has different things that inspired the story, including events in my life, and the stories I grew up with. But, all together what made me want to write in the first place was reading. It was getting into a story and having all these ideas in my head that said, “what if this happened?” and then there simply was no other choice other than to write my own stories.
