A F Costa
Author of Bruxa
( The Secret WithIn )
How did you get your start in writing?
From a young age, I would play out stories and created new worlds in my mind to discover. I have always loved to write, but like most of us, I got carried away with life. It was time to unleash my writing spirit, now I can’t stop.
who are your biggest influences
My biggest influence is L.J.Smith; to me she is the founding mother of Y/A Paranormal. She is a versatile writer who can write a series and can successfully write something completely different in her next series of books. My son’s passion for life is my biggest influence.
What is your biggest inspiration when creating?
Music hands down, I make playlist, each song for each chapter. I know it sounds crazy but I play out the scenes in my mind with each song.
Could you give us the details of your current project?
My current project is blood ties the sequel to Bruxa. Blood Ties will take the reader deeper into origins of the paranormal.
What is the next goal you would like to achieve with your writing?
My Next goal is to be the Latin version of L.J.Smith. In truth, I want to continue learning and growing in my ability to write and work my way into the hearts of every reader.
