My second interview has been posted and I would like to thank K.J. for approaching me to do this interview, it was a lot of fun.
- Tell us a little bit about yourself (this can be personal, profession, or both).
I’m an aspiring author and I’m absorbing all of the knowledge I can that revolves around writing and the publishing industry; while working my latest project.
- What are you working on right now?
I am currently in the midst of a first draft for a Young Adult novel titled Dreamer. The novel revolves around a girl who’s on the brink of adulthood, and is doing everything she can to create a better life/future for herself, through the route of a college acceptance letter. While at the same time, trying to survive the rest of the year living with her parents; who both suffer from drug addictions.
- Where did your inspiration for this book come from?
I think I had multiple inspirations for this book. The first came from a pile of setbacks with another book that I was working on. The second came from the passing on of my grandmother earlier this year. The third I think being that Dreamer was something new and different than any other story I’ve written in the past. I’ve also had my own personal experiences; where I’ve encountered or have known different people, who have had their own struggles with addiction. So it was the combination of those different instances that have inspired me for this book.
