Why I Started Writing:
I began my writing journey quite young. My mother and sister loved to write, and I grew up wanting to be just like them. Soon, the hobby became a passion when I fell in love with reading. I dreamed of inspiring and entertaining people like my favorite authors did. Beyond that, I specifically started writing create-your-own-adventures because I loved the original choose-your-own-adventure books and longed for more of these interactive stories as I grew older. When I found none for the YA market, I figured, why not write them?
Authors Who Have Influenced Me:
My favorite authors are William Goldman and Robin Jones Gunn. But when it comes to the authors that inspired my writing, I would say: Rick Riordan, Stephanie Garber, Marissa Meyer, and Jules Verne.
Books I Have Written:
Once Upon a Book, a YA, fantasy, create-your-own-adventure novel
Synopsis: Calessa knows reading is banned. Now that she knows she can, however, how can she stop?
