When did you start writing?
I first started writing for fun when I was eight years old, and since then, I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t working on some writing project or other. I always wanted to grow up to be a writer, but I had heard that becoming a writer was a long, hard road, and I worried that I didn’t write well enough. The more I tried out different jobs, though, the more I realized that all I wanted to do was read and write, so I did. Eventually, my work got published. My first book came out in 2006.
