Meet Our Featured Author Chrissy Moon.

What’s the biggest misconception about you and why?

Sometimes people tell me they think (or used to think) I’m a snob. Turns out, I don’t always realize when someone’s talking to me, or that they would even like to talk to me. My brain kinda works in a weird, almost backward way. I can’t explain it.

How do you balance the different genres you write?

I think it’s more the other way around. The different genres balance me. I need all these things. I need to exhaust the horror-filled images in my head. I need to get rid of these stories about people loving and hating each other, so more stories can come in. I just write whatever comes to me, and the genre comes later.

Do you use logic or intuition when you write?

Intuition first, always first. Later, logic pulls everything together in a way that makes sense.

What is your advice to aspiring authors?

First, follow your instinct. Second – and this will be a struggle – learn to look at your own work semi-objectively when it’s time to edit and beta read. It’s okay to get offended if someone doesn’t like your work, but try to compartmentalize and take constructive criticism. You can learn a new skill to add to your talent, and you can only improve.

Why writing, of all things?

I suppose because it’s the most natural thing for me to do. If not in book form, I’d still be doing it somehow.

If you weren’t doing this, what would you be doing?

Maybe take some night or online classes. Study anthropology.

How would you describe your relationship with other authors?

Meeting other authors has without a doubt been one of the most rewarding things that have happened to me as a result of being a writer. We share ideas, our triumphs, and our failures. I have grown as an author and as a person. I have met many people whom I admire very much.
