Welcome to Conversations with Authors, where I – Alison Thompson, AKA The Proof Fairy – meet amazing authors and find out what inspires them to write and what advice they would offer other aspiring authors.
My guest today – the youngest guest I’ve ever had on my show! – is Anika Goyal, who is just 13. Anika is an author and podcaster and her first book Mixed Bowl of Stories was published when she was only 11!
In our conversation Anika explains how she uses vision boards to inspire her imagination and why she is looking for an agent for the two novels she is currently writing. We also discuss planning, beta readers and why authors need to keep reading!
