  2. How old were you when you first began writing? I was eight! The summer before, my grandma had taught me to type, so I used my writing as an excuse to practice that (it worked!)
  3. Name two writing goals. One short term & one long term.My short term goal is to finish Tears of an Angel (Belgrave #2) by late January/early February 2014. My long term goal is to have success with self-publishing The Belgrave Daughter, the rest of The Belgrave Legacy, and my other books.
  4. Do you write fiction or non-fiction? So far, I only write fiction, but maybe in the future I’ll write an autobiography or some other type of non-fiction.
