Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Most teenage girls know their name, where they came from, who they are. Not G, a beautiful redhead with unusual markings on her wrist. She gets her name from a silver locket she keeps around her neck, unaware the engraved letter “G” on its front holds the secret to her past.

G’s life before the age of six has been a mystery to her. Each night for the last twelve years she’s been haunted by the same nightmare—a war. Horrendous beasts, warriors able to wield the four elements, and a boy who saves her by means of blue fire taunt her memory. But on her eighteenth birthday, G’s life begins to unravel. When she meets her new Chemistry professor, a man with an uncanny resemblance to the boy who saves her, she knows there must be more to her dreams.

It’s dangerous not knowing who you are, what you’re capable of, and what future awaits you. Especially when the darkness that slaughtered your entire world, just found you.

Author Interview:

  1. How long have you been writing?

I was 6 years old the first time I wrote a poem, from then on, I used to write everything, everywhere (sorry for the walls mom). It wasn’t until I turned 19 that I started to write professionally.

 

  1. Where did your love of storytelling come from?

Ever since I was little I loved knowing how people met, how they fell in love and even fought. I used to pay attention to how they reacted and the consequences of their moods…what would happen with them if I was writing their story. Also my mother taught me how to enjoy books and the more I read, the more I fell in love with the art of storytelling.

 

  1. What was the hardest part of writing this book?

Hardest part was linking everything related to the main storyline between the 5 books.

 

  1. What inspires you?

Music! Food, other books, nature.

 

  1. Who inspires you?

Everyone inspires in some degree. Strangers talking, my family, friends, little gestures, words. Sometimes inspiration comes from the least expected source.

 

  1. What are some day jobs that you have held? If any of them impacted your writing, share an example.

Nanny (one of my favorites because the parents use to buy pizza for me…score!),

English teacher

Waitress (gave me patience and respect for other people’s jobs- also now I can carry 4 plates plus a glass of water to my room at the same time, which is awesome)

Sales (I learned that I’m absolutely terrible at selling)

Producer (helped me to see the business side of writing)

Screenwriter (helped me to learn how to create characters, structure, plots, etc)

Reader at Universal Studios (helped me to detect good stories, the do’s and the don’ts)

Author (showed me that if you really want something you just need to go and make it happen… and that sleeping was a thing of the past.)

 

  1. What do you like to read in your free time?

I love reading YA, fantasy and romance! Some genres help me with my writing and character development while others help me get distracted and take a break from my mind.

 

  1. Do you aim for a set amount of words/pages per day?

I aim for 2,000 words per day.

 

  1. What is your favorite motivational phrase?

You’ll miss the best parts if you keep your eyes shut – Dr. Seuss

 

  1. What advice would you give to aspiring writers?

Read, write and edit as much as you can. Also, ignore anyone who tells you your dreams are just dreams, you are the only one who decides how high you reach.
