a conversation with helen

I loved my creative writing degree, and wouldn’t take it back for the world. While it’s an invaluable experience …  it’s not the be all and end all, and there’s no “right” way to write — Helen Scheuerer

As Helen Scheuerer continues to take the indie publishing world by storm with her Amazon best-selling YA fantasy epic, Heart of Mist, I sit down to chat all things writing, the HoM audiobook release and the upcoming sequel–Reign of Mist.

This year has been a tumultuous one indeed: I moved countries, got married, began a new day-job, bought my first car, and moved again (domestically this time); I said goodbye to my Grandmother, a second mother who raised me alongside my own; and lost two public figures (Chester Bennington and Kim Jonghyun), who have been a source of love, comfort and inspiration, to this terrible illness called depression, of which I also chronically suffer. It really has been all over the place–I have been all over the place. Personal rollercoaster aside, though, and my writing career(?) has been a pleasantly stable fixture. Let’s take a look.

Where has the month gone?

June has passed in such a blur I’ve lost track of what’s even happened. Seeing as how it’s been a relatively quiet month for me across the board, I’m going to use this recap to look back at the first half of the year as well.

Let’s break it down.
