Hi Andrea:

Thank you so much for reading POINTE! I'm so glad you enjoyed the writing and that it felt unique. :)

I've actually known I wanted to be a writer since I was a kid. I started writing when I was seven years old and I knew I wanted to be an author even back then. Books have always been special to me, but I also loved making up my own stories and putting them down on paper. I'm a pretty perceptive person with a wild imagination, so writing always felt like the best way to deal with all the "what if" scenarios I proposed to myself.

I was inspired to write POINTE after seeing a TV movie called "I Know My First Name Is Steven" when I was a child, which was based on the true story of Steven Stayner, who was kidnapped and held captive for seven years. I'd always wanted to write a kidnapping story of my own and had always wanted to write about a ballet dancer, and the two eventually came together into the book you read!

I am working on another novel, though I'm keeping details under wraps for now. But I can tell you it's another YA novel, I'm very excited about it, and I'll be sure to give any news about it as soon as I can. :)

Thanks so much for your question!(less)

“She knows about the music stuff, but she doesn't care. That's why I didn't tell her about my job at the studio. She doesn't want make me want to be better, like you do. She doesn't get that it's scary... to want something so much and not be sure if you're good enough.”
