Tell us a little bit about yourself, your hobbies and interests.

I'm an undergraduate student at UC Berkeley studying environmental science and conservation & resource studies. Some of my interests bleed into my writing, such as linguistics, science, and history.

When and why did you start writing books?

I wrote short stories that I considered to be "books" when I was very young. As soon as I started coming up with stories that extended too far to be limited to a few pages, I was writing books. I've loved to write since I could write.

What made you decide to tackle writing as a career?

Writing is not my career, but it is something I feel that I must do for my sanity. It brings me joy.

What book are you reading right now?

I am reading Opium and Absinthe by Lydia Kang. I highly recommend it, it's a very fun work of historical fiction.

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

It will come from seemingly nowhere, or as a dream. Then, after the initial seed of an idea, my interests will start to overlap. For Atrocious Immoralities, I was incredibly interested in the Renaissance era, especially religious conflicts and the concept of "divine right ruling." This combined with a dream I had and created a story that works.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

When I'm not writing, I'm playing/making music, listening to podcasts, playing video games, and enjoying the outdoors.

Do you have any new books in the works?

I have started on a second book to follow Atrocious Immoralities as a series. If you are left with more questions than answers about the Magellans at the end of the book, you will enjoy the continuation of the story.
