3 Facts About Me
1. I love British history. No, let me honest – I ADORE British history, so much so, that I can name the Kings and Queens of England IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. (I can do this even better when I’m drunk lol).
2. I love reading True Crime articles. It’s a strange habit to have, but there’s something so gruesomely fascinating about them. I can’t stay away.
3. I’m a writer! I have been working on a 4-book YA series about a matriarchal society and magic. I have yet to start the actual writing part, because I have this habit where I get really excited about a book I’m working on, start writing it before I come up with the middle/end, and then I get to a certain point in the book and I’m like ‘… now what?’ So until I come up with a middle (I have the beginning and end), I won’t be writing because this book series is really important to me.
Dawning Moon’s questions
Which is a character that you wish to know the most?
Definitely Elizabeth Bennet. If I met her in real life, I’d cry.
What do you think is the most powerful superpower in the world?
Precognition – the ability to predict the future. You would know when anything bad is about to happen, and could potentially stop it. Also, tattslotto numbers.
Which do you prefer: your book or series getting a movie adaptation or a TV adaption?
TV adaptation! Movie adaptation have to cut so much out to fit into a 2 hour movie. TV shows can delve much deeper into the books – but I’d also like to have final say about changes. I don’t want my book series to suffer the same way Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments has suffered – there’s so much amazing content in her books, and they’re adding unnecessary scenes and stupid storylines.
How do you visualise your book?
I don’t want to reveal the titles of my books, but each title suggests darkness/lightness. So the first book is pitch black, the second a dark grey, the third a lighter grey, the last white – so they’re getting lighter and lighter with each novel. I can’t explain why that’s important, but it follows the storyline and it has to do with magic. I also picture a girl on the cover – but not like SJM’s books because I want the colour to be the most striking part of the novels. So maybe like the girl is in the corner or something? Or maybe like a different character on each novel, because each book’s title relates to a specific person in the book.
What inspires you the most?
My brother. He’s only 11, but he’s one of the best people I know. He’s a smart kid, and really sensitive and honest.
My favourite post:
1. If you could time travel to only one period of history, which would it be?

3. What is your favourite country/city you’ve traveled to? And if you haven’t traveled, what country/city have you always wanted to visit?
4. What classic novel have you always wanted to read but haven’t/or DNF’d?
5. Is there a book that you wish you had come up with instead of the original author?
