We’re starting the tour off on a good foot this morning! My first stop touring with ‘Daughter of the Drackan’ is at Rogue’s Angels, where they’ve interviewed me on my writing and the release of this book.
The following is an excerpt from the interview, but head on over to Rogue’s Angels to get the full interview. Leave a comment and chat with me there, and you’re automatically entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card.
All kids have secret wishes, daydreaming about things they wish would happen in their lives or impossible things they want to be possible—like magic. My reason for writing was a combination of both. I had a bit of a rocky childhood, though I wouldn’t change a single bit of it for the world; it made me the person—and the writer—I am today. I spent years writing about things I ‘wanted’ in my life at the time, and most of it revolved around experiences I’d never had but hoped to have some day in the future when I ‘grew up’. Writing was a phenomenal outlet for me growing up, and it oftentimes gave me the hope I needed when nothing else would do. The other half of my inspiration came from my pretty ridiculous imagination—as I believe all writers have. Sometimes, the real world is just plain ol’ boring, and I found very quickly that I could spice it up a bit with writing about things that could never, ever possibly happen in this universe.
