I wish I could give details, but I wasn’t/am not/won’t be there, so I don’t know any :( I don’t even know what tense to use here because it’s story-wise not happened yet, if it’s even ever going to. So maybe like the “future perfect fictional” tense?

Hi Emily! Thank you, and I’m glad your friend liked the books too! 

The best advice I have for aspiring authors is pretty simple:

It sounds simple, because really, it is when you get down to it. If you want to be a writer, just do those things, write all you can, and stick with it. Good luck!

Thank YOU for reading them, and I’m really glad you enjoy them!

I loved fairy tales as a kid, both the original stories and the Disney versions (HUGE Disney fan). I read as many as I could find, but I also read a lot of comic books, and the thing I loved is how superheroes could meet up and mess up each other’s stories. Basically I really wanted to make the Big Bad Wolf also the Beast from Beauty and the Beast :)

Sure! Here are some weird details about me:

1) I moved to four different states before I was 11.

B) I used to have to wear corrective shoes, but I don’t remember why!

C) One of my favorite books as a kid was called THE GREAT BRAIN. 

4) I may not actually exist. 

Does that help?

Thank you! I hope you like the third book too, and there’s a new series called STORY THIEVES that starts in January. Does that help?

To show that there were more “story” worlds out there (or mythological worlds, if you prefer).
