What was your favorite book as a child?
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
Do you remember the original reason or motivation why you started writing creatively?
Writing to me is a compulsion. I never really had a choice.
What was the most adventurous or thrilling thing you ever did/experienced?
I unfortunately have a terrible tendency of getting myself into scrapes, hence, I must state that even my mundane is adventurous, and it shall be incredibly difficult to describe a singular event in itself.
Do you listen to music while reading or writing?
Music is a different medium of storytelling altogether, which is why I am unable to listen to music whilst reading or writing. But occasionally, I do listen to the audiobook version of a particular novel while simultaneously reading it.
