I hate the idea of any kid missing out on the magic of reading.

Gen Y is depicted as self-centred and apathetic when it comes to politics, but it doesn’t help that we are largely overlooked. There have been policies to woo parents, pensioners and the sick, but the young do not appear to rank high on any political agenda.

I’d read a lot of books where the girls are in awe of the supernatural male, so I thought it was time to write about an awesome and super-powerful female who is also quite vulnerable and naive about life on earth.

The subject of angels and demons really grabbed me. There is a huge mass of information, and the Bible is one of the most amazing reference points.

Writing was something I have always been interested in. I’ve grown up in a household full of books, with both my parents English teachers and very booky.

When I first told people I was writing a book, some would say that was interesting, but others thought it was some holiday project and I would lose interest. I think my parents thought the same thing, and they were surprised when I kept going. I’m not sure I thought I would keep going, but then it became a big part of my life.

My school is very good and quite understanding and know I have to take time off for interviews or writers’ festivals.
