Interview with Author Octavia J. Riley

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you get into writing?



It’s a little funny how I started writing seriously at the age of twelve. I’d been an avid reader for so long, but I didn’t like how the Twilight books portrayed vampires…so I wrote my own vampire book. Of course, it was terrible, ha! However, that inspired me to keep writing. I started writing fanfiction at an early age, and...

Anthony Hey there everyone, this is author Anthony Avina. I've finally joined this wonderful site and wanted to introduce myself. I'm an indie writer as of now, publishing ebooks through Amazon Kindle and physical paperback books through Createspace and Amazon. I specialize in the horror genre, but love reading and writing in various others. I'm a hopeless romantic, and a big fan of incorporating that into my books. I love to write because I love reading. I'm a huge Stephen King and Dean Koontz fan, but also love the classics, like Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and even Shakespeare. I also like George R.R. Martin, Tami Hoag, Richard Castle, (both the show version and whoever writes his books), and various other authors. My goal is not simply to promote myself, but to connect with readers, writers, and everyone in between, to talk about anything and everything, in hopes of building a community, as well as some friendships. Thanks guys, and I look forward to meeting you all!
