It’s never too early to start building your reader platform.
7) When did you start writing?
My writing interest really started when I was twelve years old, but picked up in my young teens.
8) Who is your favorite author? Why? My favorite authors are:
Laura Stapleton because she is very supportive of others in the book world community, her stories are amazing and she just keeps going!
Sara Jarrod because her book Heaven Above was my first adult read which consisted of a paranormal twist with some epic spicy romance scenes. I cried, laughed and constantly grew anxious. There was never a dull moment with all of the feels!
VC Andrews because her stories are nicely detailed, exciting, and she isn’t afraid to write differently out of the norm.
