. What is your favorite coffee drink?
Short black or iced long black for summer
10. What is your favorite coffee shop?
Here in Melbourne, I love Volt Café, otherwise, I’m happy to sit at Starbucks and drink frappes all day long.
11. Do you plan on making a new book in the future?
I plan on writing as long as my mind and fingers work. So I don’t see myself slowing down any time soon.
12. How many books have you written?
I have written 10 novels and published 6. I recently signed a 3-book deal for a new YA trilogy which will come in late 2021.
13. Did you go to college to be a writer?
Initially no. Straight after high school, I started working to save for my first home. Once I’d accomplished that, I started writing my first book. A few years later a friend encouraged me to go back to school to expand my skills. At first, I wasn’t interested considering how much writing experience I had, but after talking through my apprehension with the university, I was fortunate that they allowed me to go straight to master’s level (Grad Cert in Literature). I’m currently doing my second degree in Literature – a Master of Arts and Master by Research, concurrently.
