Well Hello there!What makes you like writing this genre?
I think there’s something beautiful about raw, real relationships. When there’s controversy, there’s more to fight for, which means the endgame will be a lot more satisfying knowing you survived the journey to get your happy ever after. I grew up thinking fairytales were real, that love came easily, and when I was old enough to date I soon found out just how untrue that is. I want to write books about real life things, no matter how much it hurts, because there’s always going to be someone who connects to the characters and finds them relatable.
What was the first book that got you into the genre?
Saffron A. Kent’s The Unrequited is what made me really interested in writing more taboo topics like cheating.
Who is your favorite author of ALL time?
No hesitation, without a doubt, Mariana Zapata. I love her writing style. I love how she builds up her characters and relationships, even if the slow burn sometimes kills me. That woman could post her grocery list online and I’d read it 50 times.
