1.I am a big fan of music, dancing and singing. I write while I’m listening to music and I could go on all day just dancing, it makes life so much more fun.
2.I love my Caffé latte with vanilla and hazelnuts syrup that’s the one thing that keeps me good all day.
3.I have a big imagination, when I was young I used to want to walk alone home from school just so I could create my own stories.
4.I do all my house chores in high hills other ways nothing gets done.
5.You can guaranty if you take a trip with me you will have adventure, missing your flight, train or a bus or you need to loan me money because I am so excited for the trip that I forget mine in the car back home. I don’t just fantasies about adventure I live it.
6.I love to laugh and make others laugh too.
7.My family and friends will always come first and I will do everything I can to help and be by their side when needed.
KG: What or who inspired you to be a writer?
KR: Actually it was no one well it was me ;) I have always had a big imagination since I was a child and I loved writing my ideas down on paper.
KG: What gave you the idea of your latest book?
KR: Hummm so many things. The woods, the night, the stars, the moon just everything around me I guess I had wanted to write a adventures fantasy story for a while but I never gave myself time to do it, until one night when I just couldn’t sleep, I sat down in front of my computer and just started to write. The characters had such a great and fun story to tell so I guess they gave me the idea, it sounds crazy but it’s true.
KG: Who is your favourite writer?
KR: Me of course But I love Nikolas sparks.
KG: What's your favourite book?
KR: I know I should say some of Nikolas books Like the Note Book and The Best of Me;) but I would not be writing my own books if they wore not my favorite at the moment ;)
KG: Do you read a lot? If so what are you reading right now?
KR: I am a very bad reader but of course I read sometimes but at the moment I’m just focusing on my own book.
KG: What writing projects are you working on at the moment?
KR: I’m working on my third book in my series
KG: Where do you see yourself and your writing in five years’ time?
KR: Well I have big dreams, like I have big imagination so in five years I am still writing and I’ll have at least five books out by then, maybe I will be working on a fantasy children’s book I would love to do one or two of those.
KG: What do you like most about writing?
KR: The thing I like most is that I can create and go into my own world and stay there for as long as I want. And then be able to take my readers with me into that world is the best thing.
KG: What one writing tip would you share?
KR: Oh God that’s a hard question. I would say write about what you love don’t write about what you think others will love.
KG: What would you say to inspire young up and coming writers?
KR: First of all I would tell them, this is the greatest job in the world and if you believe you can, you can. Dreams do come true but great things take time so be patient.
