I am a college student who spends way too much time on Wattpad and Netflix. It was Poelho Coelho that made me fall in love with reading and first inspired me to write. Something you should know about me is that my writer’s block can be easily cured with all things chocolate. I love interacting with my readers and writers on Wattpad, and I am always up for new friendships!

Thank you for checking me out!

When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?

I’ve always wanted to write, and I had been writing short stories for a while before I started to publish, so I’d say I always wanted to write, maybe since my early teens.

How long does it take to write?

A book? 2-3 months and a chapter, it just depends on the mood I am feeling and my motivation.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

I read, playing video games, spending time with my family, and cooking.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned about yourself in creating your book?

One of the biggest things I realized was my ability to channel the pain I saw around me in my writing.

What do you think makes a good story?

Character development, I believe a story should show some strength in a character as it progresses.

As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

It changed on a daily basis, but mostly it was about doing something that would have an impact on those around me.

What quote inspired you and you live by?

“When you want something all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.”
It’s a quote I live by.

What Movie or series character would you say describe you as a person?

Belle from Beauty and the beast. Her character was daydreaming the whole time as she read the books, I daydream and come up with stories. Both misfit bookworms!

What song inspires you?

Inspired me to write? I believe the first idea came from a Bastille song. It’s called Pompeii.

When you wrote your first book. What inspired the story?

A song I heard and the lack of the kind of book I wanted to read.

What inspired your characters in your first book and were they based on people in your life?

Honestly, I have no idea where the inspiration came from. They weren’t based on people in my life, not even close.

Would you change anything from your first book?

A couple actually, I’ll add in more scenes, work more on my style, which evolved a lot throughout the course of that book, and is definitely much better in my newer books.

If there is a message in any of your books, what would you like people to take away from reading your book?

Honesty. That’s the message I want to send. I write about lies and betrayal because I want to show how much damage these things do and how important it is, to be honest with people and most importantly yourself.

Why is reading a book better than watching a movie?

It allows your imagination to run wild, a movie doesn’t allow that. I mean there’s a whole world for you in a book, a movie just limits it up.

If they make a movie of your book who would you like to play your main character.

Oh, that’s a tough one, probably the muses I pick if they can act!

Do you like to read ebooks or paperback?

Both, I’d love to have paperbacks of my favorite e-books.

Who is your favorite author?

Can’t name one… But if I were to pick a couple I’d say Poelho Coelho, Mitch Albom, Cassandra Clare, and Veronica Roth.

Tell the people about your book and what it is about.

Deception is a mafia romance, the first book in the series of six books and also it starts Lorenzo Santini’s trilogy. It’s based in Sicily, where the recent laws are making it hard for mafias, however, many secret enemies attack from the shadows while a judge carries his operation, one of those fuckers proposes an arranged marriage to Lorenzo with his daughter, and the chain reaction starts.

Suave is about a thief, Theo Blanc. Luck was kind to him and he grew big, but Arielle might be the girl to take something from the robber.

Any unknown author you would recommend?

There’s so many, but maybe Hana Walker on Wattpad. She isn’t that unknown, however, I do believe her books deserve more.
