Yet another great author taking part in my mini author interviews! A fellow Wattpad fanatic, @thepaperbunny
1) What does writing give you that no other medium does?
Writing is freedom. Writing is therapeutic. Writing is a personal way for you to let out your frustrations through the voices of the characters. Once you stop taking this gift for granted, you'll realise how happy writing can make you feel.
2) Which would you rather do forever? Read or write?
Tough one! I suppose I would read forever. A good writer isn't a good writer without having read a good piece or two.
3) You have featured the iconic Michael Jackson in several of your works. What is it about him that you find inspiring?
There is honestly so much I could say. But in terms of story writing, I think his character is really befitting of my love for the non-cliché. Michael was a fun, loveable and extraordinary person that is exactly like those boys portrayed in novels ㅡ only he was real.
4) Which of your original characters would you most want to be friends with and why?
Joanne. Her character is actually based off of a close friend. In my story, Joanne is the type of approachable and laid-back person that even the shyest of people can quickly warm up to.
5) What is your writing preference? Silence, or music, or TV in the background?
I love to listen to classical and light music whilst I'm writing or studying. I can get really emotional listening to piano instrumentals like the Epitone Project's 'Spring day, Cherry Blossoms and you' piece. Ultimately, I find that it sets the scene and helps me capture the moods or atmosphere that surrounds the characters - that little bit better.
IS THIS IT?
Every girl dreams of finding her King and becoming his Queen. Just as how every King searches for a girl to make his Queen. But what happens when a Princess and a King challenge this tradition to be with each other? Krystal was just a hopeless romantic with a busy, eventful past; hoping to quietly get away to the US as a time out from her demanding career back home. Michael was a prestigious celebrity with doubts, insecurities but a whole lot of passion. Most of life's doors are not front doors, nor back doors but rather unexpected side of doors. When the twenty-year-old Krystal walks through the double doors that lead into Michael Jackson's 18,000-square-foot, French chateau-style Carolwood estate in the January of 2009, little did she know that her life was about to change for the better... And the worst.
