TCWT: "How have both the people in your life and your own personal experiences impacted your writing? Do you ever base characters off of people you know?"
ZH: Definitely. The people in my life normally serve as inspiration for secondary characters or antagonists in my stories, while parts of me always seem to make it into the main character. As to real life events informing ones in the books... maybe for backstory, but that's it. I'm writing novels, not memoirs, so while my life is a jumping off point, my work diverges really quickly.
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
