A Goodreads user asked Mary Fonvielle:

How long have you been writing for and what inspired you to do it?

Mary Fonvielle Thanks for the question! I started writing when I was very little. My father is a writer and I have always loved reading, so I guess it was to be expected. When I was around 4-5 my parents would make me little booklets out of stapled printer paper, which I would fill up with stories and pictures. I think the first one I completed was about my experience with the chicken pox, which was a great distraction from the itching.

Later on I would definitely say it was reading that inspired me. I got into fantasy and science fiction around age 12, and started writing my own stories around the same time. I've been writing ever since!
