Who are your influences?
I appreciate a lot of different writing styles, but I’m most influenced by Neil Gaiman, Laini Taylor, Daniel Kraus, Ilsa J. Bick, Holly Black, Kendare Blake, Cassandra Clare, Julie Murphy, and Rainbow Rowell.
Growing up, I read a lot of Stephen King, Christopher Pike, and Anne Rice. I also really admire the work of Paul Tremblay, Joe Hill, and Ronald Malfi. These guys are my heroes.
