 10) To the youth of today, if you could tell them one thing, what would it be?  
Know that you were created for a purpose and you are so dearly loved. I truly hope that through my writing I am able to show readers that, yes reading is fun and creating worlds that could never exist is fun, but more than that I hope I should show them that love is a choice, and that our Creator loves us, just as the Great Luna loves her wolves.
