About the Author: Cristal Victoria

1. My author bio on the cover of Escapades says I will sign books for cheesecake or washi tape. This is completely true. ๐Ÿฐ

2. I started writing Escapades for a workshop called “First Chapter” at Columbia University (my undergrad alma mater). โœ๐Ÿพ

3. When I read, I ‘dog ear’ pages instead of using a bookmark! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Horrid, I know!

4.One of my favorite classes in college was Script Analysis, where I wrote a 50 page analysis on Disney’s The Princess & the Frog and received 100% ๐Ÿธ

5. The first book I remember reading solo cover-to-cover was Dr. Seuss’ Go Dog, Go! I remember being proud I read a big kid book. ๐Ÿ“š

6. In college, I’d show up to class early 99% of the time and write in a journal until class started. I filled several journals. ๐Ÿ“–

7. Escapades was handwritten before it was typed. What can I say?..I’m a paper and pen kinda girl! ๐Ÿ–‹

8. I do not write my novels in order ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ I write in scenes, not chapters, then piece the story together with an outline as I go.

9. My favorite book series growing up were all journal inspired. I feel my planning, journaling, and scrapbooking today is due to my love of ‘Amelia’s Notebook‘ (I still have my original copies in my library!) ๐Ÿ““

10. Borders Bookstore was my favorite place to go with my mom when I was little. I miss it dearly. ๐Ÿ“š
