TCWT: Is there one particular book that changed your life? If so, why did you originally choose to read it? What impact has it had on you?
ZH: Oh, that's so hard. My God, that's a tough one. I love all the books I read. But I'd have to say, The Giver by Lois Lowry. I originally read it on a book recommendation from my cousin. I was in 4th Grade and I wound up rereading it for school in 5th Grade. I liked it better without my teacher giving me quizzes and tests throughout the book. Anyway, I'm rambling. The impact it's had on me is that I don't take things for granted. I didn't before, but since I read it all those years ago, I make sure to live in the moment. Even though pain is not enjoyable, it is a part of life and I'd rather be caring and feeling emotion than living a dull life.
Willow Haywood is different, she’s always known it, she just doesn’t know the full extent of her unique ability to sense and influence the emotions of those around her. She's also been having dreams of people she’s never met, but can influence, and a beautiful boy in a field every night since childhood. Once a month though, on the new moon, she has a nightmare of a shadowy figure. She doesn’t know what this means, but when her father drops a bombshell on her after a nightmare that came too early, she learns that the world she lives in, isn’t all it seems. Caught up in prophecies, danger, and the struggle of good and evil, Willow must navigate the String and find out who she really is.
Landen Chambers is from the paradise Chara, a different dimension from Infante (Earth), and he has the special power to see people’s intent– a power that’s never been seen before in Chara.

Picking A Title For Your Novel:
Is there anything more satisfying than that moment that you come up with the perfect title? Sometimes it just pops into your head as you’re writing, and other times you’ve already thought of a title before you even begin writing. And sometimes you’re sitting wiggling your bum like a pleased puppy at how gosh darn clever your title is!
Not me. No. I never do that.
