I’m honored to be on 5 Girls Book Reviews for an interview. Read the excerpt below and check out the full interview on 5 Girls Book Reviews.
1. Are you writing another book? If so, when do you think it would be published because I would love to review it for you as well.
Thank you so much Michaela! I would love for you to review the next book, too. I have started writing book 2 of the series. I’m not entirely sure how long it will take, but I do hope to have something ready by next year. I do have a pretty good idea what is going to happen in book 2 but it always changes once I get halfway through the story, depending on the way the characters behave.
2. Where did you get your ideas/inspiration for The Last of the Firedrakes?
I started thinking about this book nearly ten years ago. Building the world of Avalonia, whenever I got time. The actual world creation started with a tapestry in my grandmother’s house. One day I stood before it and wondered, what if I could step into the tapestry, where would I end up? And so the world of Avalonia sprang into existence.
From then on, the person who stepped into the tapestry was a young 16-year-old girl who didn’t know who she really was, her name was Aurora, and this is her story.
3. What age did you begin writing?
I must have been in the sixth grade when I started writing poems. They were really quite bad, I then tried writing fiction, but I would never finish anything because of schoolwork. It was only after I finished studying that I started creating Avalonia and wrote my first book.
4. What age were you when your first piece of writing was published?
I was twelve when one of my poems was published in a local magazine.
