Author Showcase Feature with Book Excellence Award Finalist Crystal Marcos

Book Title: Novus (The Cresecren Chronicles, Book 1)

How did you know you wanted to be an author? I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an author. All my life, as far as books go, I have mostly read Children’s books and Young Adult books. I was inspired at a young age by my favorite book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

What is your advice for aspiring authors? If you had to do it again, what would you have done differently? It is difficult to find time to write sometimes. However, you can always find the time to imagine or daydream. File those thoughts away in your mind, record yourself on a handheld tape recorder, or jot them down on a piece of paper for when you have time to write.

Do you have any writing rituals or practices? Not really, not now anyway, I have two small children so I get my writing in whenever I can. I mostly write at the kitchen table.

What message do you want readers to remember? I want them to remember something I am passionate about.
“You should listen to even the smallest voice, someday it could be the one that makes a difference.” Crystal Marcos
