Why do you write?: I write to express my feelings through another outlet. In writing, you can relive the moments you write about. In some cases this is a good thing, and in others it is not. I often find myself feeling the same way I felt during that situation after I finish writing. I learn more about myself every time I write.

Describe where you write.: I like to write in Starbucks. I am not sure what it is about the coffee shop, but I focus much easier and accomplish more.

Who or what is your muse?: My little brother is my muse. He often tells how much he misses me and cannot wait to see me. Being only ten years old, I am his role model. Because of that, I want to be the best I can be to set a good example for him.

Three wishes . . .: My first wish would be to know the last name of who I am going to marry. My second wish would be for the safety of who means most to me in life: family and friends. My third wish would be to know when I am going to die so I can accomplish my bucket list before then, and because dying is one of my biggest fears.

Favorite childhood book, and why?: Time for Bed. My parents read it to me most nights before bed. The book wound me down and helped to calm me before going to sleep.

Explain when is your ideal time to write.: My ideal time to write is night. The dark is relaxing and calming, and helps me clear my mind.

Name a book you would reread again and again, and why.: The Clique series. I am entertained at the amount of drama, and now since I am in college, I can laugh at the pointless high school drama.

E-book or print? Why?: Print. I can only look at a computer screen for so long. A tangible item in your hands also makes it easier to focus.

Favorite magazine, and why?: I do not ever read magazines, but if I had to pick one it would be Seventeen Magazine. I am entertained by the drama with the famous people in the world.

What would you like readers to take away from your writing?: I would like readers to enjoy and get caught up in my writing. To see how much emotion and effort I put into each word, and appreciate it as much as I do.
