 About The Author:
 Author Picture
Marissa’s dream of writing came about when she was ten, after reading a particularly inspiring story of dragons and elves. She instantly fell in love with the fantasy genre, and characters soon began to manifest to satisfy her adoration. It started with a forty page handwritten novel, which she dubbed “Dragon Girl” and continued on to more challenging (and better written) works.Now, Marissa can often be found to be studying literature in English class, curled up at home with one book or another, or with her eyes glued to the computer screen as her newest set of characters manifest.

I started writing when I was ten, and as you can imagine, a ten-year-old’s inspiration for writing is quite a bit different than an eighteen-year-old’s.  I really enjoyed reading and it was  getting lost in the worlds that these authors created that made me want to start writing. I wanted to be able to make people get lost in the worlds and characters I created. My favourite author at that age was Christopher Paolini. I had just finished reading Eldest and I picked up my pen and just started writing. My first story was about a girl who was part dragon.

Nowadays, I write because I fell in love with it. I have a signed copy of Christopher Paolini’s final book in the Eragon series, Inheritance, on my shelf in my room to remind me where my inspiration came from and that maybe some day, I can be the inspiration for someone to pick up a pen and start writing as well.
