1. Who are you?
I’m a new adult and mystery author living in Austin, Texas. Born and raised in the Lone Star State, I work in sales for an internet company as a day job and when I’m not writing, I’m probably reading a book or watching tornado coverage somewhere on the internet.
2. How long have you been writing?
I first started writing seriously in eighth grade. I had a green notebook I snuck into class every day and I’d write by hand during classes. You can read more about my start with writing here
3. Who are some of your favorite authors?
I love reading novels from other women and stories about other women. Meg Cabot was one of the first authors I read that made a real impact on me. My mom and I are both huge Janet Evanovich fans and in 2018, I spent most of the year reading the In Death novels by J.D. Robb. In 2018, I also discovered Meg Gardiner when I saw her speak at the Texas Book Festival and picked up her newest book at the time. It wasn’t until 2020 that I read the book though.
ABOUT CASSIE MORGAN
1. What books are a part of the Cassie Morgan Series?
- The Assassin
- Double Played
- Justice & Lies, coming soon
- Hit List, coming soon
2. When did you start writing this series?
I started Cassie’s story way back in eighth grade in that little green notebook. As I got older and lived out my teenage years, so did Cassie and the first book, The Assassin, saw a lot of changes before it was published.
3. What was inkpop all about?
Inkpop was a website for teen writers sponsored by HarperCollins, one of the big publishing houses. Every month, the top five books at the end of the month would get a review by a real-life HarperCollins editor. When I first found this website, I was obsessed with the idea that one day I’d do enough work to get into the top five. I remember my parents being awful skeptical of this when I first told them. It took ten months, but in October 2010, I was a top pick. You can read the review from HaperCollins here.
ABOUT EMILY BURNET
1. What books are in the Emily Burnet series?
- Airtime and Alibis
- Bullets and Bylines
- Cameras and Confessions
2. How many books are there in this series?
While I’ve got these three released and a few more ideas planned, this series could theoretically go all the way to twenty-six books. It would take a long time to get there.
1. Will you read my book?
I’ll be honest, I don’t read unwritten work except in rare circumstances (and that’s only if I already know you), so I’d say no. I’m a writer, not an editor.
2. Do you have any posts about writing?
Yes, I do! You’ll find more coming soon on my writing process.
