Autumn Falls is a book written by Bella Thorne.
"The first book in the Autumn Falls series tells the story of a 14-year-old girl whose high school life changes after an encounter with magic," she says. "I was inspired by my own personal experiences with trying to fit in and starting over. I wanted to tell a story that other teens could relate to but with a little humor and in a slightly fantasy way. I wanted to tell a story that could impact teens with struggles that we all experience, and I wanted to tell it in a way that is a little escape from reality."
Since her book is about magic, we couldn't help but wonder if she feels like her real life is a little enchanted, too. "I think everything about my life is magical," she says. "I've struggled, and against most odds, I'm truly having the experience of living my dreams." Could she be sweeter?
Writer's block is no myth—trust us—so we had to ask how she deals with it, especially since she's balancing writing a whole book series with starring in a bunch of movies and working on new album. "I listen to music, I look at old pictures, and I step away for a moment until I'm inspired once more," she says. "Music is a big part of my life. I listen to different genres, and I choose the music that will inspire the next part of my story. For example, if I'm writing about a reflective moment, I'll choose a slower song or a ballad. If I need some energy, I'll listen to some pop music. And if I'm in need of some cool factor, hip-hop is my choice." Don't mind us, we're just over here blasting A$AP Rocky on repeat...
