The book that changed your life:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I read the series as an adult, but I felt like a kid as I entered the wizarding world. Everyone craves to make their mark, and this book series allowed me to join Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Neville in changing the course of history.
Your favorite literary character:
Professor Snape. Out of all heroes, Severus is the most interesting. He isn’t good, be he ultimately isn’t bad. His finest quality is his loyal love to Lily.

Advice to new and aspiring authors:
Have a plan. But give yourself grace to veer off from said plan when needed.
The family dynamics made me laugh out loud at times and get frustrated at times because they’re so relatable!!! I’m not giving much detail because I think this book can speak to hearts in many different ways and I don’t want to spoil that individual experience for future readers. If you’re looking for an enjoyable read that will also make you think & grow your heart in love, then read Remember Us immediately!!
