What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have a friend that wanted me to write something for her. She was born at a problematic time in her parents relationship so I wanted to write something that would hopefully make her understand that it wasn’t her fault. The story is in no way hers but it has all the side effects. Too many people feel responsible for how they came into the world when it wasn’t their choice.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
They seemed to be natural to the story I wanted to tell. I knew I needed a couple, their parents, their friends. I added some kids because they can bring out different aspects to people and make hard times easier to deal with. It was a very easy story to figure out who was needed. The only exception being that Sophie’s boss had more of a part then I thought he would, making me have to come up with a name for him while writing Life’s consequence.
About the Author:
When I was younger I never stopped writing until I was nine, when one of the girls in my class had enough of me being praised and tore up my newest story. After that I didn’t write until I was eleven and what came out scared me. I never expected myself to write about kidnappings and torture when I was that age. I didn’t write for along time because of that, apart from to get my emotions out. Thankfully I tore up everything I wrote over the next decade and a half. I was extremely depressed and working my way out of it so what came out was not good at all.
As soon as I was out of it -in the sense that I could stop myself from falling very far when my brain did it’s evil work on me- I wanted to start to write again but didn’t know what to write until I read Noble rot by Holly Black, which is a beautiful short urban horror story. Once I figured out what I wanted to write I thought for a while, putting what would become choice together in my head and then I started to write it. A couple months in I stopped writing because I thought it wouldn’t go anywhere so what would be the point.
Thankfully the story would not leave my head in peace until I eventually sat down and wrote it almost two years later. I sent it away to a publishers and after four days I had a reply from them saying that they wanted my book. It has now been over a year since I had the email back from them and I also have two more books out in different genres, yet I am still in shock that I am actually living the dream that I had thought was impossible and I don’t know when it will truly sink in. Until then I am going to continue to write and grow in a way I never would have thought I could.
