Gender: Female (though I've been mistaken loads of times to be a guy)
How old were you when you started writing? When did you start?
I've been writing as long as I can remember learning the English language! Which would mean since I was about six years old. I was taking ESL classes in school and my mind was just filled with stories waiting to be written. And so, that's how it all started out.
What was your first story, could we read it?
I wrote my first story at the age of six, entitled, "The Prince and the Princess". It's actually up on Protagonize to those who'd like to see baby Trish's works. :P

What are you working on right now?
As well as contributing to several collabs (which I greatly struggle with keeping a consistent role in), I am currently concentrating on my story/novel "Potential's Sanctuary"! It's my first serious fantasy piece and revolves around a group of teenagers who discover their elemental powers and learn the purpose behind their life with all the action, drama, and confusion going on in their lives. ;D
Where do you get inspiration?
I get my inspiration from anything, and everything. Life, as a whole, is an inspiration. I like to observe others. And I am a huge nature freak. I just love, love, love nature and it inspires me. ;D Especially the rain.
When is your favorite time to write?
Any time, really. I'm almost always with a notebook and a pen in hand, jotting down random song lyrics that play in my mind or the start of a poem or ideas for a story. :D
Do you prefer collaborative works or Solo, do you like both?
I really can't choose. Both are equally fun. But I guess the deal with collabs is that you get to have a taste of everyone's different writing styles and it can be extremely addicting to write with others. But at the same time, there's always the risk of a good collab dying. And that scares me.
How did you find Protagonize, are you on any other popular writing sites (Booksie, smashwords, wattpad etc.)
I found it a few years back, when I was browsing on Facebook and saw a Protagonize-ad in the corner. And then and there began my Protag-addiction. :P
Anything else that you would like to share about yourself or your writing?
I'm a pretty friendly person and I don't bite, honestly. Unless I'm hungry. But, do introduce yourself to me if you are reading this! I love making friends. And I'm quite an entertainer. Just very random and funny. And a total pain sometimes but you'll grow to love me. :P
Oh and I believe that penguins rock.
And that watermelons are weird.
And and and...I love writing.
But I guess you already knew that. :P
