Everblossom is a journey through poems and short stories that may seem ordinary on the surface but dig a little deeper and the world not only shifts. It changes.
From the author who brought you Iwishacana/Acanawishi, she now brings you a dash of everything from dark fantasy to the paranormal to even romance. So prepare yourself to delve into the three stages of the flower from bud to blossom then back to seed, you'll go through them all with a whole new perspective on what it all truly means.
How did you start your writing career?
I started my career with writing at the ripe age of 12. At first, I wrote poems because of my lovely English teacher decided that we should write poems and from then on, I fell in love with poetry. The writing bug really bit me a year later when the movie of Nickelodeon movie, Clock Stoppers came out. I thought the movie was going to be horrible, so I decided that I would write a novel that would be better than the movie. Needless to say, my book wasn't as good as the move but I didn't care. I love writing and nothing else mattered. Thus my obsession with writing begun.
Where do you dream of traveling to and why?
I dream of travelling to
since I love the Russian culture and I speak Russian. :) Russia

Tell us about your next release.
My next release is Angel Diaries: Volume One. It's a paranormal romance that features Lindsey Wings. Lindsey's life couldn't have been any more ordinary. So, she had two guys fighting over her, a psychic friend and a school dominated by Goths but, other than that, life was good. That is until horrible nightmare start about her mother being ripped apart by a monster, changing her life from the inside out. Literally. Her whole world was full of lies. She's not human. She's an Angel.
That's the basic premise for my next release. Hopefully I will release it late April but more than likely it will be available in May.
What is the easiest part of writing your books? What is the hardest part of writing your books?
The easiest thing about writing is coming up with the ideas. I come up with new ideas practically every day I take a step outside. Now the hardest part about writing is putting your idea on paper and making it come across right. Especially for a novel. It's a long journey from the first page until the last and to make sure it's projecting the idea from cover to cover from word to word is the most difficult part. As a writer, you have to be consistent, persistent, and have excellent time management to be able to complete a novel with style, grace and be sane. Seriously. Ask some writers if they haven't pulled their hair out over a story that just wouldn't translate from their brain onto the paper right. Ah, the makings of a novel.
Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?
Actually, I don't listen to music when I write. The reason I don't listen to music is because it distracts me from writing. My favorite genre is electronic dance. So every time I listen to it (especially Cascada or Rhianna's Please Don't Stop the Music) I want to dance instead of write. So it's more of a hindrance instead of a help.
Do you have any suggestions for beginning writers? If so, what are they?
I have plenty of advice for beginning writers! They can check out these links on my blog here:
But overall, I'd say keep writing and keep reading. Do your research. Do not limit yourself with traditional publishing or self publishing. It is possible to do both.
Describe what it’s like to be an author in three words.
Unique. Traumatic. Therapy.
Do you have a Website or Blog?
Absolutely! Here's my blog: http://teacherwritebookaholicohmy.blogspot.com/
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
To my readers, I have to say you are the driving force behind my writing. You are the people I am so grateful for and I hope that you will find time to read my books and love them just as much as I do. And if you do love them to pieces, then please express and share your love in reviewing my books online! That is all the thanks I need at the end of the day.
Hello, my name is Larissa Hinton. I'm a grad student at
and hopefully by next year,
I'll be a full time secondary English teacher. In the morning, I'll be a
teacher but at night I'll become an author. Is the reference not working for
you? Hampton University
Anyway, most of the fiction I write really comes from a life of reading of what I love to read. Some of it, comes from a dark place which I never knew existed until college. Ah, gotta love college. Always discovering new sides of yourself.
