ACM: What sparked your interest in writing, and how did you get started writing fiction?

Brower: I've been writing fiction ever since I was capable of writing; I've always generated stories in my head that naturally spilled out through my fingers. It helps that both of my parents are voracious bibliophiles and loved telling me all types of stories when I was young.

ACM: How have you developed your writing while you’ve been at Cornell?

Brower: Currently, I've been trying to expand my writing repertoire by exploring different genres and researching many interesting topics to write about.
