7 Facts About Me:

  1. I’m adopted from China.
  2. I learned to type when I was 5. I can do it with my eyes closed, too. And with one hand, if necessary, like I’m doing now (because my right, and dominant, wrist is fractured).
  3. I wrote my first novel when I was 9 years old. It was a blatant Nany Drew knock-off.
  4. I have no siblings, but my older cousins have always treated me like their little sister.
  5. I know how to make handmade books. It’s really fun and almost meditative.
  6. My debut novel came as a result of two previous book ideas and a new slew of dreams, which added the main plot and magic to the story.
  7. I have finished writing the first draft for the 2nd and 3rd books in The Belgrave Legacy, but am writing Glowing Embers while I wait on my editor.

I started blogging a little over three years ago. I had just started high school, decided I wanted to take my writing seriously, and thought that blogging would get me a lot of exposure. I’ve learned the last part is mainly true only if you run giveaways, talk about YA dystopian fiction, or are part of a blog hop (or award chain like this one). And you need to share your links everywhere, multiple times.
