What was your favorite book as a child?

Unfortunately I don’t remember the title anymore, but it was a book about dwarfs and their lives throughout the year.

What was the most adventurous or thrilling thing you ever did/experienced?

Ziplining a 700m long wire about 150m above ground. As someone who is terrified of heights, finding the strength to take the final step was the most thrilling feeling I’ve ever experienced.

Do you listen to music while reading or writing?

I never listen to music when I write, unless a story is inspired by a song. Then I will have the song play on repeat in the background to try and capture the mood when writing. Other than that, music only distracts me from writing.
