When did you start writing?
I’ve always been a writer. From a very young age, I loved to create worlds and invent characters. I started off, when I was around seven years old, writing about fairies in the woods. Then the fairies changed to witches as I got a little older. Then they changed to sirens. It soon became obvious that I loved writing in the fantasy genre—and I was serious about it too.
My first short story, “The Silent Siren”, appeared in Iron Bound issue 3 when I was sixteen. It was my first published work! From then on, my writing just grew and grew. I started writing full-length manuscripts. And my third completed manuscript, UNTAMED, became my debut novel after I signed a book deal with Prizm Books when I was 19
