Chloe Gilholy

When did you first realise you wanted to write for a living?

It was at a young age when I learned to love books and start writing.

Which writer, past or present, do you most admire?

I admire anyone who can get their work published in any climate. Authors that I have always admired include Stephen King, Roald Dhal, Agatha Christie, Sarah Waters, JK Rowling and many more. I love how even though a lot of these authors are dead, their legacy still lives on through the books and endless adaptations.

What was your first published (or performed) credit as a writer?

I had a poem selected to be published with an anthology when I was eight and I haven’t stopped writing since.

Which piece of writing work are you most proud of?

My novel and 10th book, Game of Mass Destruction. It’s a really wild book which I went all out on. I’m also proud of my Pokemon fan fic, Carry On, Blissey because I know that it’s made such an impact on readers.

Who or what inspires you to write?

Everything from other people’s work, music, TV shows, people and the little things that make this horrible world worth living in.

How do you switch off when you’re not writing?

I don’t.

Which one piece of advice would you give to aspiring writers?

Just do it.

Why are you a member of WGGB?

Because I wanted to be part of an organisation that cares about writers of all backgrounds.

Chloe is a healthcare worker from Oxfordshire. She’s written a plethora of fan fiction under the pen name, Chloboshoka and has published 10 books. Her most recent work is the dystopian sci-fi, Game of Mass Destruction.
