How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
All children, teenagers and young adults share a boundless pool of energy, curiosity and hope. Everything is new and captivating and begging to be investigated. I love that yearning and to be the person who intrigues their already colossal imagination, would be a great achievement.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Many writers take their characters with them wherever they go and I’m no exception. To explore their personalities and their reactions to certain situations I imagine them in various scenarios throughout my day. The more rounded the character, the more believable the person is within the story. Your characters must be real to you if you want your reader to believe in them.
I have worked at many jobs throughout my life both in an office and working with people in a care situation. I have cared for the elderly, special needs children and young adults, and I still volunteer when I can. I am a full-time Author/writer now and have never been happier.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Writing a story opens up a world which is entirely controlled by the writer; it can be happy or sad, down-to-earth or mystical, heart-warming or terrifying. It is the most exciting and captivating use of time and is full of possibilities. A good story consumes the reader absolutely and leaves them bereft when they get to the end. I have read many stories like this and I hope that one day my stories will have the same effect. That is when I will feel that I have succeeded as an Author.
