DO YOU HAVE A DEGREE IN WRITING?
Nope! I have a BFA in Studio Art with an emphasis in photography. While my degree doesn't have anything to do with writing, I have found that the creative and critiquing processes I practiced in school have definitely carried over and have been a big help in my writing.
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR CRITIQUE PARTNERS OR BETA READERS?
YES! If you are interested in beta reading or being critique partners, feel free to contact me. Bonus points if you live in the DFW area!
WHEN DID YOU REALIZE YOU WANTED TO BE AN AUTHOR?
I think I always knew in the back of my mind I wanted to write, but I didn't actively pursue writing until my mid-twenties.
WHAT MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO WHEN YOU WRITE?
I actually get extremely distracted if I listen to music when I write, but music plays a huge role when I'm plotting/brainstorming. I'm a big fan of the "epic music" genre for this and I listen to it a lot when I'm driving or running, which is when most of my big ideas come to me. Right now I'm listening to a lot of music by Two Steps from Hell, Audiomachine, Thomas Bergersen, Hans Zimmer (of course), and Future World Music.
