I’m a back-up cook for a franchised restaurant, I’ve just turned forty, I’m enjoying my adventures in writing and I’m a chocoholic.
2. When did you start writing, and why?
I started writing when I was about 12. Mostly because I was a book-worm with a big imagination and I couldn’t contain the ideas that were growing in my head from the fantastic worlds I was reading about.
3. What do you write, and why? What do you enjoy about what you write?
I write fantasy, adventure, urban fantasy, and sci-fi. All with a bit of suspense and romance. Because none of it’s real. It bends to my rules and I can shape it to my will. My Imagination. It never ends and it continues to surprise me.
4. What is your latest book or series? Any forthcoming books?
Latest book was the sequel to my Red Summer series: Wil’s winter. A series that was supposed to be as I had originally wrote Red Summer as a stand-alone story. But the characters decided they didn’t want to end there. So currently I’m working on a third book for that series, to tie up all the loose ends. At the same time I’m putting the final touches on the first book of my sci-fi series ‘Mostly Human’.

I like that my characters are all going to be themselves to the fullest. Selfish, smug, arrogant, biased, evil, vindictive all of it. I have no formula for them.
7. A fun fact you would like your readers to know about you or your book.
I’m a geek. I love and collect anime, comics and video games. I love getting lost in RPGs and escaping real life in my imagination. My stories are never planned. They’re all either daydreams or dreams that have stuck with me until written.
