She discovered her love for reading when a middle school reading assignment led her to the fantasy section of the library. This passion sparked stories of her own imagination, yet she never put pen to paper until after college. When she's not consumed in her writing, she enjoys Olympic weightlifting, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and coaching color guard. </div><div><br></div><h3>What prompted you to write this book? </h3><div>There was a time after high school when I would go to the bookstore weekly and pick out a new book. After a couple years, the selection of unread epic young adult fantasies grew slim, so I set out to write something I would want to read. </div><div> </div><h3>What attracted you to this genre: romance, mystery, non-fiction, etc.? <br></h3><div>Fantasy is by far my favorite genre. I love that the possibilities are only limited by my imagination. I can write my own rules in my own made up world. It is the epitome of freedom. </div><div><br></div><h3>What book are you currently reading? <br></h3><div>I am currently halfway through <em>Midnight Sun</em> by Stephenie Meyer. It’s a guilty pleasure for sure. I read the series back in college, and I couldn’t pass up the new release.  </div><div><br></div><h3>Are you writing anything now? If so, when will it come out? </h3><div>I have two projects going at the moment. I am editing <em>Children of the Volcano</em>, which is the sequel to <em>Warden’s Reign</em>, and it is set to release March of 2021. Between those edits, I’m currently just past the halfway point of writing the rough draft for the third installment of the <em>Essence of Ohr</em> series with a 2022 release date.  <br></div><div><br></div><h3>If you weren't a writer, what would you do? </h3><div>I have a great interest in exercise and working out so I would have pursued a career as a personal trainer if writing wasn’t an option.  </div><div><br></div><h3>Do you use your local library?  If so, which library is it and what do you do there? </h3><div>My local library is the Mesa Public Library. I have been to both the Main and Red Mountain branches for an extremely helpful tool that I think any aspiring writer should utilize which is the Writer in Residence. This program gives people the opportunity to meet with established authors and ask questions about writing and publishing. They can give feedback on your pages or query or help figure out a plan for seeking out agents and publishers. Often these authors will hold lectures on topics such as tips for convincing dialogue, planning outlines, writing realistic action and so much more. I continue to learn from this program.  ​<br></div><p><br></p><p><br></p></div>
