What types of books do you like to read and write?
The type of books I enjoy writing are about scary, nightmarish things. Vampires, witches, extraterrestrial girls, ghosts, zombies, you’ve guessed it, I’ve probably written about it at one time or another. I’m constantly coming up with new ideas on a daily basis, penning them into college ruled notebooks. Even though the stories I write involve teenage characters, the content can get a bit dark and edgy at times, so I’d have to say they’re suitable for ages sixteen and up.
