1 * What inspired you to start writing middle grade/YA novels?
I started writing poetry first, in high school. After I had my poems published and won a few contests, I decided I wanted to try writing a full on novel. So I came up with the idea for Searching for Darkness and began writing! I had so much fun writing it that I knew this would be my genre.
2* Have you ever had writers block before? If so how did you cure your writers block?
Yes! I have writers block quite frequently. But, I always find myself re-inspired after a long drive in the car or a shower!
3* How did you get the idea for writing Searching For Darkness
I knew I wanted to write fantasy and I knew I wanted to write middle grade. I began thinking of the stories I like to read and what would interest me. My favorite books and movies are full of adventure, plot twists and suspense. So I made sure my book had all of those elements! Then I just created a general idea and began writing and editing!
