In high school, it was all about obsessions. I fell in love with movies and books as if they were friends. Blasted the same mixtapes over and over. Scribbled pages of graphic novels that never really ended. Typed out pages on a dusty computer at school. Ever since I was little, I wanted to write.
When I'm working on a new book....I need to be obsessed. I fill my brain with songs. Create playlists for chapters and scenes. I spend a lot of time thinking about my character's wishes and fears. They become part of my world...sinking into my dreams when I'm asleep.
