Did you always want to be a writer?
Actually no, I wanted to be commercial artist and work for an ad agency. I didn’t think of writing back then. I only started writing a few years ago after a Grape soda induced dream that was weird and wonderful at the same time. I told people about it and they said ‘that could be a book’ and so I started writing. Funny I wrote the dream book but it’s not the one I first published. It’s still in a virtual drawer waiting for edits.
What inspires you to write?
One I started writing, everything around me inspired me. Music lyrics, movies that I thought should have ended differently. Even pictures!
Do you have a daily writing routine/schedule?
I write when I have the time. Mostly after the day job and over the weekends or if the day job is slow, I write to pass the time (shhhhh!)
Haha, I won't tell. :)
What is the current Book you are promoting?
I have my debut novel, Finding Monsters on Amazon.
I just finished the sequel, Becoming Monsters and it should be out in October of this year.
Exciting! I will keep my eyes out for it.
Can you describe your main characters for us?
Missy is the main character of both books. She starts out as a frail teen battling a serious disease. Her monster, Charlie calls to her and eventually takes her on an adventure and shows her what’s it’s like to be a normal teenager. As the story progresses you find Missy is not frail at all but fierce. She’s had to suffer and endure pain so it makes her work harder to survive perils and work through difficulties. I love her spirit and determination.
Charlie is from the monster realm, Bullclan territory. He is a bull, half man, half bull. Like a Minotaur but no hooves but just as fierce. He has become weakened by his link to Missy, the human. He is completely devoted to Missy and will not let anything happen to her, even if it costs him his life.
