Two years ago, Jayde Holloway discovered that she had the power to erase memories in the worst way possible: by accidentally wiping her best friend Jenny’s at the end of their senior year. Now, shut off from the world, Jayde exists solely for her role as the Sin Eater, an entity who can take away a person’s every bad memory if they so wish… for a price. Jayde hates the lonely life that she’s dealt, especially under her strict boss Jak, who consistently keeps her under his watchful eye through blackmail: a constant reminder of all of her mistakes. When she must travel back to her hometown, Jayde secretly befriends two siblings with a haunted past of their own. As her own painful memories begin to overwhelm, Jayde must make a choice: remain chained to a familiar but hurtful past, or reveal all of her darkest secrets for what could be a better future.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was going through a really hard time a few years ago, and I often wished that I could just erase some of the memories that were causing me grief. I thought I could move on with my life much quicker if I wasn't being brought down by those once happy memories. It sparked this idea in my head – would someone really do that, erase bad memories if they could? And the premise of Sin Eater was born from there.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My main character, Jayde, was already invented before the actual book idea. I love to draw, and I often get obsessed over drawing certain characters I come up with. She was the star of many of my drawings, and when I came up with the story idea, my mind immediately connected to her, that she should be the main character. As for the others, some are inspired by my real life friends and family.
I take what is most precious to people: their memory. It's so simple. Give me your woes, and I can make you forget them. I could make you forget everything, if I really wanted to. I cure wounded people and give them a second chance.
However, their second chance means parts of their lives are completely missing, gone forever. They will never know that self again, nor will they remember those who were lost. They can continue on with their life in ignorant bliss, but I will always know. I will carry it for them within my own memory. Their troubles will stay with me for the rest of my life.
Yes, I will erase, I will cover, I will bury.
But I will always remember.
I save and I hurt, all at once.
