InterviewWhat inspired you to write Surface?
I've always loved mermaids, even the singing ones. I really wanted to explore the darker side of the mermaids I grew up with and at the same time introduce a crossover of other water beings into our world. I love when fantasy blends with reality.
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
Staying focused. I am the most distracted person in the world. If you called me up and said 'hey do you want to go to a balloon animal making workshop?' I'd so be there.
Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
Wow, to pick one, would be crazy, but if I must, I'd have to say JK Rowling. She is the queen of imagination. She draws every age of reader into her world and transforms the reading experience as if the book was written solely for you.
What is your favorite Quote?
Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light. ~ Albus Dumbledore
What do you do in your free time?
I'm obsessed with going to the movies. If I had more time, I would be there every week.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
Always dream big, believe in those dreams, and when they come true, seek to inspire others so they may spark the light within themselves.
