1: How long did it take you to write your book?
The first draft took about 3 months. From start to finish to get it polished it took a year. Much better than my first attempt at a novel, which took me 10 years.
2: Who is your favorite character in your book and why?
This is such a hard question to answer because I love my characters so much. I’m going to take the easy way out and say Plyth. He is a baby dragon and is just so adorable you can’t help but love him.
3: Do you prefer salty or sweet snacks?
Yes. Especially together. Peanuts and chocolate are soul mates 🙂
4: What authors do you look up to and why?
I look up to a lot of authors. Mainly people like Patricia C. Wrede, Robin McKinely, and Patricia A McKillip because I read their books when I was younger and felt inspired.
5: Which author do you think you write like the most?
I’ve been told several times that my writing reminds people of Robin McKinely. But I like to think that I take a little bit from all the authors that inspire me, mix it together and add my own little dash of awesome.
6: What’s your favorite food?
Chocolate. Cheese. And Pizza. Can’t forget pizza.
7: What’s your favorite movie?
The Princess Bride. Best sword fight scene. Ever.
8: If your book was turned into a movie, who would you cast for the main characters?
That’s hard. Since my main characters are kids it would depend on which actors are the right age. But, if I had a time machine and could pick anyone: Renick->Asa Butterfield, Thane->Jonathan Brandis, and Lainey->(a very young)Emilie de Ravin
9: Describe your book in one sentence.
Renick learns that the dragons from legend are alive and well, and it changes everything he thought he knew about the world.
10: What kind of interaction do you hope to see from your fans?
I’m open to anything really. But what I really hope to see is others inspired to read and write by reading my books.
11: Would you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?
Introvert. All the way.
