Author Interview - Ciye Cho

As a part of the Blooming Love Blog Hop today we have an interview with the author of our giveaway books Ciye Cho.

How many more stories will there be about Florence?
I'd like to write at least one more book in the series.

Do you have a favorite character that you've either written or read? My favorite literary character? That changes all the time. Right now it's probably Karou from Laini Taylor's "Daughter of Smoke and Bone." As for one that I've written, I like Yolee a lot.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
Coney Island to see the legendary Coney Island Mermaid Parade.

Do you have anything specific that inspires you, or makes you think something would make a good story?

I'm fascinated by the world of cake decorating. I think it's completely mind-blowing what some people can do with a bit of frosting. I'm currently writing a new YA series which features elements of cake baking and decorating.

Night owl, or early bird?
Sometimes both. I tend to sleep late and wake up really early.

Who are your influences?
Growing up, I loved things like "The Wizard of Oz" and "Alice in Wonderland." But these days I'm very inspired by the amazing world of young-adult fiction. In particular, YA Fantasy.

What is one book everyone should read?
"The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?
Whenever I have some free time, I love exploring the zany and wonderful world that is Tumblr.com. What is your writing process like? Writing. Re-writing. Looking for mermaids. What was the first thing you ever wrote about? And how old were you? One of the first things I ever wrote was a story about a cat trying to escape from a predatory washing machine. I was a little kid when I wrote it, and it wasn't very good. I think it was entitled "Look out, Gato!"


Ciye Cho lives in Australia and works as a graphic designer. He writes YA novels in his free time--and his head is often lost in the clouds or some place far from reality...


Enter to win both Florence and Luminaire.
