Q01 – When did you decide you wanted to become a writer?

A: I’ve always loved writing.  When I was 12 was the first time I finally thought “what if I wrote a book,” and that’s when I finally wrote my first complete novel.

Q02 – Are there any authors who inspire you?

A: So many authors. Tamora Pierce, John Green, V.E. Schwab to name a few.

Q03 – Who is your biggest supporter?

A: My boyfriend and my family. They’re the first ones to usually read my work and they’re always at book signings and other events.

Q04 – What is the title (or working title) of your current manuscript and can you tell us a little bit about it?

A: Clara and Ezra, the sequel to Clara and Claire. We follow Clara in the second book as she works to solve a series of murders.

Q05 – How long have you been working on this manuscript?

About a year now.

Q06 – Do you plan your stories or just leap into the writing?

It depends on the book. With the Magicians series I planned a lot (to keep everything in order), but with my more recent books that are not part of a series I sometimes try to plan less and let the characters take over the story yelling.

Q07 – Do you have a writing routine?

Yes, I usually do my best writing at night, so I tend to write into the late hours of the night.

Q08 – What is the hardest part of the writing process for you?

Editing –it’s no fun for anyone but it’s necessary.

Q09 – What are your thoughts on Self Publishing vs Traditional Publishing?

Both are acceptable nowadays.  Personally I love self publishing. It might require more work and is harder to recognized, but it has its perks.

Q10 – What is the single best piece of advice you could give to new writers?

You have to be willing to stand or fall with your book no matter what.

Q11 – Are there any authors you would love to meet in person?

E. Schwab

Q12 – Tells us why you love writing

It’s my passion. It allows me to tell stories.
