1. When did you start writing with the hope of becoming an author?
I’ve always written, ever since I was a little kid (even though that’s such a bleh response from cliche-ville, BUT it is a true reponse) I don’t think I thought much about being a published author back then though, I was too busy scribbling stories and getting ink on my fingers.
I started thinking about publishing as a young teenager, because by that point I knew 100% and beyond that writing and sharing stories was my joy and that I needed to do it forever.
2. What is Worlds Beneath about?
Worlds Beneath is about….ahhh. So much! I kind of like to leave it up to the reader, to find out what it’s about. But the story is a continuation of The Blood Race, picking right up where we left off, following Icarus down into the ravine and the mysteries that lurk below the mist. Simultaneously we follow Hawk, who lays in a coma since Icarus’s fall, and Fin and he struggles to support a crumbling and turbulent Dimension.
3. What inspired Worlds Beneath?
The idea for the story really just blossomed in my head as I reached the end of the writing process for The Blood Race. I started working on Worlds Beneath very soon after.
4. Who is the book for?
Anyone and everyone. If you are currently breathing, this story is for you. To anyone wrestling with life, questions, doubts, dreams, and thoughts – to anyone fighting the darkness and seeking the light, this book is for you.
5. What do you want readers to gain from your book?
Anything that helps them realize there’s a warrior within them. There’s so much packed into the story and I really just want people to read it and let it meet them where they are and see what they organically take away from it. But if the story gives them anything, I hope it gives them trust in the fact that they are so much more powerful and loved and valuable than they realize. That we ALL are.
6. Have you written any other books and where can we get them?
The Blood Race! Book 1 in the series, and you can snag that right here.
7. What kind of books do you enjoy reading?
I love reading non-fiction – scripture, spiritual books, motivational books, military books, science books – you name it. I also beta read for my sister, so I guess fiction occasionally happens too. 🙂
8. Who is your favourite character in Worlds Beneath
OH WELL THIS IS A TOUGH ONE. My favorite characters to spend time writing are Hawk, Icarus, Fin, and Sensei. I can relate to each and I always learn so much from them.
9. Where can we connect with you?
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and of course, my blog. 🙂
10. What tips you have for young aspiring writers?
Keep writing, no matter what! If you want to build a career as a writer, go for it – all the resources you need are available to you! Keep writing and don’t give up, ever, ever, ever.
