Hometown: Annapolis, Maryland
Where I live now: New York, New York
Fave book of ALL time: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Nothing compares to the first.
Person who inspires me the most: The two amazing women in my immediate family – my mom and my younger sister.
What made me want to become a writer: I’ve loved reading since before I could remember, and it was during my pursuit to devour as many great books as I could when I realized I wanted to tell my own stories. I started journaling on paper, and then eventually made the switch to keeping a journal online. When I got to college, specializing in creative writing was a no-brainer.
Music I listen to when I write: Music from TV show soundtracks, Spotify playlists designed for deep focus and creativity boosts, and occasionally acoustic cover songs.
Fave place to work: My room in my apartment or a local coffee shop that has good wifi (if I can snag a seat).
Writers I look up to: SO MANY. J.K. Rowling, Roxane Gay, Stephen King, Mallory Ortberg, Rick Riordan, Marisha Pessl, Diana Gabaldon, Chelsea Cain.
