About Brittany Hawes
Brittany Hawes fell in love with writing at a young age, when she first discovered that she could make people laugh with words. She has been writing as a hobby for years. Twisted is the first book she has finished. Her inspiration? Family. When the question, "What would you do for someone you love?" popped into her head, ideas started to bloom. Eventually, Harlot Rue and her journey to find her missing parents were born.
Although her first book is geared towards young adults, she also enjoys writing children and adult stories. Her favorite genre is fiction, mainly because she loves using her imagination. She became interested in secret agents after years of playing James Bond video games with her siblings as children. When she's not writing, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, dancing (poorly) with music videos, and singing.
Her future plans include finding a career in writing, traveling the world (starting with Los Angeles), and getting her own dog. She currently resides with her family in Florida and attends Chipola College, where she majors in Communications. She is this close to receiving her AA degree from Chipola College. She plans on transferring to a university in the next year, where she will begin working towards earning a Bachelor's degree.
