Let's begin with our first question:
What was your favorite book when you were 8 years old?
I was reading the Nancy Drew Mystery series.
What book didn’t you connect to as a kid and found the connection as an adult?
Flowers in the Attic Series
What is your favorite genre to read (Fiction/ Realistic Fiction/ Nonfiction)?
I love Fiction!
Who are your favorite Children’s Authors?
Emma Shevah, Author of Dara Palmer’s Major Drama
Which children’s book would you like to read that you have not read yet?
El Mago de Oz (The Wizard of Oz) by L. Frank Baum because I want to learn how to read better in Spanish!
What age did you write your first creative writing piece? What was it?
I have been writing creatively since I was about nine years old but one piece that I remember writing when I was around fifteen was a poem about the potential loss of hope.
What is your favorite genre to write (Poetry/Short Stories/Plays, etc)?
That’s a tough one. I love to write them all! If I have to choose one, I enjoy writing plays.
What was the most challenging creative writing piece that you thought you couldn’t write?
This book! There is so much that goes into writing a book. Your book becomes your baby and you want to protect and nurture it. So, it becomes difficult to present “your baby” to the world for all eyes to see.
Do you keep a writing journal?
Yes, my writing journal is filled with songs mostly that I write. When it comes to stories, they start in my head and they stay there.
