Tell our readers a little bit about yourself. We want to get to know you better!
Well, I'm 22 years old and I've been writing since the first grade. I mostly write within the horror/paranormal genre but I've also been dabbling in romance and thriller. A lot of my pieces I've written are based or loosely based on real life experiences that I've been through, which I think it make it more personal and interesting. My biggest inspiration to pursue writing is my 11 year old niece and my four year old sister. They keep me motivated even when I'm at my lowest points.
What’s it been like volunteering for Rock & Roll Saved My Soul? What is your favorite thing about it?
It's been amazing volunteering with Rock and Roll Saved My Soul! My favorite thing about volunteering with RRSMS is getting to connect with other people and organizations that share the same passion and love of writing that I have.
What made you want to join the Rock & Roll Saved My Soul team?
I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself. I saw an opportunity to work with a group of people, who like myself, wanted to share their love of writing with the world and at the same time, spread awareness for certain issues like domestic abuse and bullying, and I took it. I'm so happy I did.
Who are some of your favorite bands? Favorite album(s)/song(s)?
At this time, Pentatonix is at the top of my list. Pentatonix is an a capella group that won season 3 of The Sing-off. Two of my favorite songs from Pentatonix are "Water" and "Sing". Also, I've been listening to Shawn Mendes recently and his song "Life of the Party" is my cheer up song.
If you’ve been to a concert, which was the most memorable? Feel free to share any stories with us!
My most memorable concert experience was when I got into interview Chad Kowal and Robby Creasey of Farewell, My Love for my high school senior project called "Music Saves Lives". It was funny because when my friend and I first got to the venue, we weren't sure how or where it was going to happen. Eventually, the tour manager texted Robby and told him that my friend and I were there and he and Chad came out to talk to us. We waited until after their set and then tried to find a place for the interview. At first, we were going to do it back stage but my friend and I were just one year short of being old enough to go back stage, so Robby and Chad began joking that we could do the interview in the girls bathroom. Finally, because it was too noisy in the venue, we ended up doing the interview in front of the venue. Robby and Chad were such kind and sincere guys and they were constantly making my friend and I laugh! That was the best concert memory I've ever had!
Also, before the concert, my friend and I made huge gold, heart shaped cookies for each guy in Farewell, My Love, and after the show when I went to tell Chad goodbye, he told me a fan he had met earlier in the night had asked him for the cookie and she freaked out when he gave it to her. He asked me if I was mad, which of course I wasn't. I was actually very flattered. :)
If you could go on tour with one band for a month, which band would you choose and why?
Oh, man. This is such a hard question. If I had to choose, I guess I would pick either Pentatonix or Mariana's Trench. Both bands are so fun and high energy, I think it would be a blast to tour with one of them!
Are you a writer or musician? What genre? Where can we find out more about your writing or music?
I am a horror writer and slam poet. I'm on Facebook under Writingthroughmyeyes, or my website. My website is where I post all my pieces of writing.
Anything you’d like to add?
I just want to thank Kate for adding me to the RRSMS family. I finally fell like I've found somewhere I belong.
