Where does your inspiration come from?
Greek and Roman Mythology, pop culture, fanfiction!

What’s your advice to future writers?
Your first draft should be about telling the story to yourself! It doesn't need to be polished, but you can't edit a blank page.
If you were to be a creature from one of your books, what would it be and why?
A Cupid! I'd love to see people's reactions when they learn about their soulmates for the first time.
What are you reading at the moment?
Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade. I'm just getting into books with fat main characters and I'm loving the representation!
Has publishing changed your writing process?
I'm still in the middle of the process for the first time, but I'm already thinking about how to improve my next story based on the awesome feedback I've gotten so far!
