Next in our Interview series, a new to us author: Mary Sage Nguyen . Make sure to leave questions and comments below!
Thank you for taking the time to answer a few questions. Can you begin by introducing yourself, please?
I am a twenty four year old author. I am Asian American. I write young adult books.
What made you decide to start writing?
My muse encouraged me to write. I never knew what I was capable of.
How do you find your inspiration or where do you get your story ideas?
I usually find inspirations in my dreams, or everyday life.
Do you have a character that has been your favorite to write about?
My favorite character is Venice Tran. She is fun to write about because she is so misunderstood, and a great antagonist.
Do you write to music? Do you have a go-to list or does it vary?
I like many musicians, and songs. Among my favorite musicians is John Mayer. He seems very down to earth, and sweet. I love his song “Half of My Heart”.

Probably non-fiction self-help. I wouldn’t know how to write though, but you can learn anything through reading!
What do you do when you are not writing?
I attend college, and work as a freelancer.
If you could be any paranormal being, what would you be and why?
A shapeshifter would be cool. I could be any animal, or anything I wanted.
If you could pick the brain of one author, who would you like to have a discussion with & why?
J.K Rowling is my pick. I would like to learn about her perspective on writing, books, and so forth.
What is your next project?
I am currently working on “The Spine-Chilling Accommodation” and “The Malevolent Twin’s Retribution”.
Thanks again for taking the time to answer my questions. Is there anything else you would like to say to readers or fellow authors?
Thank you reading!
Check out The Malevolent Twin
“The Malevolent Twin” is the story of a wayward wicked twin with destructive intentions. Avery Tran is ordinary in every way except one: her friend Venice. Since she was a young girl Avery was the only one who could see Venice. Avery would describe her as her own alter ego. As Avery got older, Venice began to appear in front of Avery wearing obscene clothing, mocking and harassing her for her frumpy style and average looks Eventually, Avery started to wonder what Venice truly was. Usually imaginary friends leave after childhood is over. Her curiosity leads her to an abandoned ancient mobile home, where her parents had buried a stillborn, then to a wise old exorcist who failed to successfully exorcise Venice, then finally to a quirky middle aged psychic. All the trouble starts when Avery wakes up in a swinger’s club. Having no recollection of how she ended up there, Avery starts to think it is Venice’s doing, after discovering herself dressed and made up to look like Venice. Soon after, a neighbor’s dog goes missing and a murder scene appears at her work place. Avery confronts Venice about these heinous acts and learns what she already suspected: it was Venice, controlling her body, who had committed the crimes. Frantic to stop Venice, Avery starts to handcuff herself to the bed and searches for a way to rid herself of Venice entirely. The quirky psychic, Pennie Apples, helps her figure out what is really going on, but it comes too late. Venice murders someone very close to Avery, who feels obliged to turn herself in. In the end, Avery learns a lesson about what happens when the imaginary abruptly becomes very real.
