Paige Taylor is a young writer of fifteen years who has always dreamed of becoming an author. Her desire to achieve this success pours into her passion for writing. She recently released her first book of her planned trilogy, Secrets Wrought in Blood (Blood Blade Trilogy Book 1), and we’re anticipating both her and her works to be highly successful. We can’t wait to see what Paige Taylor brings to the author world in the near future.

Can you talk about your process in terms of how you begin to work on a new book or series? Do you spend a lot of time researching or do you find the ideas just flow?

When I begin writing a book I will usually write down all of the major plot points in chronological order, that way I can check them off as I write. The plot points act as the big events in the book, so I usually just see where my ideas take me when getting from one point to the next. I won’t usually do research unless it is required in a specific scene. When I have completed the rough draft, I will usually begin reading through the story again, making line edits, or sometimes larger edits that focus on adding, deleting, or rearranging a scene. Then, I go through again, making more line edits on the new or re-written scenes. Once this is done I go through with a final edit before sending it to a beta reader. 

Secrets Wrought in Blood (Blood Blade Trilogy Book 1) is out now. What are your plans for the rest of the trilogy?

I plan to continue with the same characters and plot line, however new elements and characters will be added. I will also be developing the story further. 

Being a young and successful author, how do you balance your writing career with school and activities?

I make sure to complete my school work before working on any edits or projects so that my work is not late and I am able to put all of my focus into writing. I usually find time for writing on weekends and for a few hours after school, sometimes during breaks in school, too. 

Have you ever encountered the infamous writer’s block? If so, how did you overcome it?

I have encountered writer’s block before, but I struggle more-so with knowing what I want to write, but not knowing how to write it. I will usually end up writing and rewriting, and if I don’t get anywhere with it I will leave it and come back the next day to continue. 

Where would you like to see your career as an author be in five years? Ten years?

In five years, I would like to see myself on the New York times bestseller list as a well-known author. In ten years, I would love for one of my novels to be a blockbuster movie.
