What inspires you to write?
I am inspired by life itself, my imagination and my internal world. Love is a very present subject, but also very complex. It really colors the human experience, and the mental processes of the individual.
Tell us about your writing process.
I always try to write authentically, because I believe that the reader deserves the best, and that is the truth. I have a tea with milk, maybe some cookies, and I begin to write my ideas, without letting them pass. I delve into those ideas, and that. it gives me the opportunity to learn more about myself and my history.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Of course, especially when I write dialogues. I imagine what one of my characters would say, in the face of a situation presented in the story. Or what they would think. I even represent them, to feel more sure of the attitude and gestures that a character takes.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors are Walt Whitman, Oscar Wilde, and Lucy Maud Montgomery.
My fascination for books began when I met Peter Pan by James Matthew Barrie. It was a book that broadened the horizons of my imagination. Reading made my heart happy for many years. At that time in my life, I wrote fairy tales, micro stories and articles. When I turned 12 I realized that I could get answers by putting my inner desires on several sheets of paper. From that moment on I have not stopped writing.
What genres do you write?
How did you choose the genre(s) you write?
I chose romance because of my passion in studying real and deep connections. For me, experiencing vulnerability and building relationships is love. I wanted to explain the diversity of ways we love with our minds and hearts.
What three things are on your writing desk at any given moment?
I think there is always an agenda on my desk, messy sheets of paper, and some crayons.
What is necessary for each brainstorming.
What hobbies do you have when you need a break from writing?
I also dedicate myself to painting, music and acting, I work in various artistic projects and I am the director of my own virtual space for children.
