Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
I see it as one of my careers, in the future I am planning to become an actress as well as an artist and a public 

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
The hardest part about the writing process would be finishing the story. I have the begging, the problem, the 
characters, and the illustrations. I know how it’s going to end it’s just difficult to finish it because I start having 
other ideas that I want to do. I think about other projects and get really interested in doing other stories and I 
still haven’t finished the story that I have. It took a lot of focusing to finish and be done with a story for me.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family? No one
outside of my family has helped me out on my writing. I’ve had people help me to keep going in my story and 
they didn’t even know about it. For example; I use what my friends might like or look like and put that little 
trait in my character.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
In the future I’m going to have more published books from picture books to hardcore big reading books. Plus I
can see some of my books and my writing on about every book site and store being sold to kids and adults. In 
my writing I love to put messages inside and I want people to know and understand and use them daily in their 

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading? 

I enjoy writing my stories as much I love reading other books. When it comes to reading I do get addicted and 
can’t put away a book until it’s over, especially a good book like the Outsiders, Hunger Games, Harry Potter. 
Just recently I started reading the Harry Potter series because my brother told me it’s even better than the movie. 
Oh, he was SO right!

I love all those books and once a read one part or a chapter, I started asking myself “What’s next?” or “She’s  
so mean, why did she do that!?” After that I am just carried away with the words and imagination to find the 
answers. You’ll be lucky enough to get me to answer back when you call me, once I’m in the zone of writing or 
reading, there’s no turning back until….

Author Bio:
At age thirteen Natalie Tinti is a multi-award winning author, illustrator, of 12 children’s books and an inspirational public speaker who promotes varied uplifting messages for her peers as well as their parents. Despite this early success as an artist Natalie was recommended to repeat Kindergarten as her teacher thought she didn’t have adequate language function and memory recall. However, this apparent set back would later serve as a valuable growth experience in her social awareness and desire to help her classmates. Natalie’s books gave her a platform for speaking at various venues where she promoted the empowerment of children to include: the value of social skills for overall happiness and as a tool in dealing with bullies, appreciating one’s unique talents and personality to bolster self-confidence, and challenging children of all ages to build friendships by having the courage to include others.
