First (and obviously most importantly)… which Hogwarts house are you?
I'm a Gryffindor (but with a strong Ravenclaw leaning)… My brother, however, is a Slytherin.
You say that you're a Disney fan, do you have a DPOC (Disney Princess Of Choice)?
It's always been Belle for me. She's been my favourite ever since I was little. I literally was that weirdo with her nose stuck in a book (and still am)!
And you grow roses. What colour are they?
Red. Of course. But a dark, gorgeous red. They're not enchanted though. Sorry.
Apart from growing roses and writing, do you have a day job?
Really, writing is my day (and night) job but I also help young adults with a variety of mental, behavioural and social needs and it's awesome.
Do you listen to music when you write?
I'm a big music person! There are particular songs that help me to get into the right frame of mind for writing particular scenes and I have a whole bunch of playlists of those songs on tap.
If there was one song that you'd be guaranteed to dance to, what would it be?
Anything. I. Will. Dance. To. Anything. With extreme enthusiasm. I once broke my foot dancing in my own home. Completely by myself. Punk-rock is generally my go-to genre though. (Killjoys, make some noise!)
Do you have a favourite word?
At the moment, it's 'psychomanteum' (an enclosed, mirrored space that ancient Greeks used to use to contact the dead). I haven't managed to include it in a story yet though.
Finally, do you have any advice for budding writers?
My favourite bit of advice was always: 'if there's a story that you want to read that hasn't been written yet, then be the one to write it'.
