I was asked to join a blog hop today. So excited, because this is actually my first one! *Claps self on the back!*
The kind miss Berengaria Brown pulled me into participating in the blog hop. If you have the time, please come visit her blog too! You can visit her blog here.

Whatever the characters need for their very hot happily-ever-after, Berengaria makes sure they get it.
Without further ado, the questions from the blog hop!
1) What are you working on?
Currently, I’m working on the second novel in the Into the New World series, which is coming out sometime this September or October. I’m a new writer, actually, so this is all a very different experience for me, but I’m enjoying it very much!
2) How does your work differ from others in your genre?
I’d like to say that my background in psychology helped me write this, but I would be lying if I said that. I think that at the core of every story are the characters, and I like to write about characters who are nuanced and different. I want their personalities, their insecurities, their traits, their states, everything about them to shine through in the way they write. I want to show their aspirations and how they are as people, and ultimately how they’re actually relatable to the people reading them.
3) Why do you write what you write?
I’m a romantic at heart. I like writing happily ever afters. I might not have mine yet, but I can pour out my inner romantic and share my characters’ lives with someone who might enjoy them. If even one reader feels connected to the characters in my book, then I’ve done my job.
4) How does your writing process work?
I do it almost the same way an elementary schooler might write their essays or how a college thesis might go – I outline everything that I want to happen in very brief, bullet-point statements, sort of like writing notes for a class. One chapter might say, “A and B meet” as the heading, but then there are supporting statements underneath that flesh out their meeting, such as… “A and B meet in the club on the dance floor,” or it could be a piece of dialogue like something A might say to B.
I’m hoping to share more about my first (and second) novel in the next coming days. Into the New World – soon! 🙂
