How did you know you wanted to be an author? I knew when I realized that even on a bad day of writing, I still loved it. Even when the editing is time consuming or chapters have to be rewritten or characters are going out of control, I absolutely love it. All those bad moments become almost rewarding when the book is finished and you can see what all that hard worked produced. It makes the whole experience priceless.
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Keep writing. The only way you fail at being a writer is when you stop writing. It’s seriously that easy and that hard.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?I usually have to have a mug of chai tea with me when I’m writing. It started off as just a little habit because I would always brew tea at night which was when I did most of my writing, but now it’s become a practice. Usually my best writing days involve having chai tea by my side.
What message to you want readers to remember?I’d want them to remember that literature is art. It’s a written artform. There are rules to follow, but just like with art, rules are made to be broken. Empathize with what the writer is trying to show you with their words, especially indie authors. They are the diamonds in the rough that never get enough credit.
How can fans get in contact with you?They can contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through my blog which has all my social media links listed.
