Seventeen-year-old Xia is just like any teenager—she loves to break rules—only difference is, she’s a grim reaper (yes, with a scythe and all). And now she faces consequences when she does something forbidden: she falls in love with a human.
Grim Crush is your debut Novel. What made you want to become an author?
When I realized I loved to use my imagination by creating worlds and characters with their own personalities, I attempted to write my first novel at the age of thirteen (it was super short, and super horrible). And when I realized that some authors, like J. K. Rowling, could make millions, even a billion from writing books, I thought, “well, if they can do that, I should at least be able to make a decent living on my own writing books.” I used to think writing books could only be a part time thing or just a hobby for me, but now I saw it could be my career (although I’m not sure I’ll ever be rich).
Why did you choose to write with a Young Adult audience in mind?
Where did you come up with the idea to write Grim Crush?
Did you relate to any of your characters while writing the novel?
You started writing at quite a young age. Do you have any advice for young aspiring novelists?
If you could choose to live in one fictional universe, where would it be?
What can readers expect to see from the second book in the series?
;Xia and Shilah’s relationship will be put to the test even more, especially with Xia’s new responsibilities that are put on her at the end of the first book.
