Ask the Author: Peighton Weber
What would you like readers to know about you?
I would like readers to know just how young I am because I really feel like that portrays my determination and it has also inspired other young writers.
What is Smoke and Ashes about for those who haven’t read it?
Smoke and Ashes is about a prophecy in which a certain evil is said to overtake and plunge the world into darkness.
What has been your inspiration for writing Smoke and Ashes?
My inspiration was probably related to the tons of other writers that I’ve met and interacted with on social media.
What was your favorite scene or part of Smoke and Ashes to write?
My favorite scene is from chapter 11, which I can’t really talk about because it involves spoilers, but it was just super fun and interesting to write.
What books or authors inspired you to become a writer?
Jenna Moreci was a big influence on me and her authortube channel inspired me to pursue my writing journey.
What advice would you give to aspiring authors who want to write a book?
I would say, whenever you’re feeling down on yourself or like you’re never going to be as good as someone else, just keep writing, because it will pay off in the end as long as you don’t let anyone else’s words affect your journey.
