What is your book about?
Pandora’s Mistake is about the myth of Pandora’s box. I took a character that has been mocked through out history for her curiousity and tried to make her into someone that people could relate to. It’s has romance and talks about the creation of all humanity according to greek mythology.
How did you come up with the idea for your book?
I love greek mythology. I wanted to rewrite some of it without changing any of the actual details. I like making people look at familiar characters in a new light.
What makes your book different than others in your genre?
I stay true to the original stories.
It’s sexier and grittier; I’m not afraid to write about anything.
Because I’m re-writing greek myths, my stories are tragedies and don’t necessarily have happily ever afters.
Who is your favorite writer? Why?
Stephenie Meyer because she inspired me to write paranormal romance and fantasy romance novels.
What strange writing rituals do you have?
I always write sitting in bed. This leads me to sometimes take naps in the middle of the day. A few months ago, I rolled over my laptop and cracked the screen. It was terrible.
Is your writing style similar to any well-known writers? If so, which one(s)?
I think I’m most similar to Kelley Armstrong, but I only write for adults. She’s not afraid to write about characters with faults or write about morbid and disturbing things. She also wrote a trilogy about necromancers, which is one of my favorite things to write about.
Who is your Muse?
Life is my muse. The interesting experiences I have and people I meet fuel my imagination.
What are your hobbies?
I play piano on occasion, I especially love to compose music.
When I get breaks from writing and promoting, I watch television, movies, or read books.
I also play D&D (and other role-playing games) with friends and enjoy video games.
Does your main character resemble anyone in your family or circle of friends?
Pandora reminds me of myself as a child before I had been exposed to anything. Pandora is very innocent and naive.
How long did it take you to write your book?
It took me six months of work to complete.
What are some writing goals for the future?
I’m currently working on a romantic trilogy about necromancers.
If you were stranded on an island which book would you bring with you?
What makes a good fantasy novel?
Imagination and the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes. I love the worlds and cultures fantasy can take you to. They’re completely different from your own.
What was the most difficult thing you have learned being a writer?
I have to be patient about everything. Every step in the writing process takes a long time and there are many of them.
What are you reading at the moment?
I’m usually lost in some type of fantasy, romance, or YA novel.
