"I love to write because I love to read. I love reading for how it can carry you away into the middle of the night, turning page after page until you find out what happens next. For that sensation of letting your eyes adjust to reality as you peel them away from your book. For how every thought after The End echoes in your thoughts in the voice of the protagonist. For magic. For other worlds. For love and loss and friendship and what it means to come together, to fight for something. I dream of writing stories like that, so I put pen to paper and try to write them."
