In talks with Hayley Reese Chow

It’s been a great time reviewing books and I thought why not share a few things about their authors as well. Here’s one of my first author interviews with Hayley Reese Chow, author of Odriel’s Heirs.

Hayley Reese Chow has short and flash fiction featured or upcoming in Lite Lit One, The Drabble, Bewildering Stories, Teleport Magazine, and Rogue Blades Entertainment’s omnibus, AS YOU WISH!

Until recently though, she’s mostly done a lot of things that have nothing at all to do with writing. Her hat collection includes mother, wife, engineer, USAF veteran, reservist, four-time All American fencer, 100-mile ultramarathoner, triathlete, world traveler, voracious reader, and super-nerd.

Hayley currently lives in Florida with two small wild boys, her long-suffering
husband, and her miniature ragehound.

But at night, when the house is still, she writes.

Disney Princesses impact on young girls

The use of media has advanced greatly over the last decade. The availability of information via movies, cartoons and TV shows has become so much easier than it was before. Children learn to use technology as soon as they can grasp objects in their hands. Animated movies are one of the first visuals a child sees and fairytales and Disney movies are a big part of the animated franchise. Thus the representation of women, mainly as a beautiful goddess or in this case a Princess is instilled at a very young age.

Pottermore Sorting

Back when all Potterheads were given the amazing portal that was Pottermore, I like everybody, signed up for it and played on it for hours and hours. Trying to perfect a potion or get the perfect arc for a spell was the only thing I could think of.

Then life happened and I lost track of what was happening on Potter. Recently, while reading articles I came across an article by The Little Contemporary Corner on Pottermore Sorting and I decided to give it a try.

13 Reasons Why…

The show had been on a controversial roller coaster since it aired on Netflix in 2017. The story of Hannah Baker, very well written by Jay Asher was in a movie form now and we heard what Hannah had to say in Season 1. In season 2, everyone on the tapes shares their side of the story and basically, we all end up disliking the plot of season 2.

Season 3 which aired on 23rd August gives us a glimpse of Bryce Walker’s death and the main question – who killed Bryce Walker?

Read at your own risk. Spoilers ahead!

Why I love reading YA Fantasy so much…

To be honest, I’ve been stuck in the downward spiral of not being able to either read or write. Call it a writer’s block and a reader’s block or whatever. I just can’t seem to get out of these blocks. For a person who finishes reading a book in 2 days, I genuinely take about 2 weeks to finish a book now. I know it’s depressing, but it is what it is.
