Tell us about your latest book.
The Sity is a dystopian fantasy adventure that pits humanity against alien dictators. At its core, it’s about the oppressed standing up to their oppressors and the inner struggles of two young humans to find their purpose in a world where they don’t belong. It’s a gory, action-packed and full of shocking twists and turns. I hope you’ll check it out.
How many books have you written?
At the moment, I only have one published novel.
What are you working on at the moment?
I actually have two projects that I’m currently working on. I really want to finish the 2nd book in The Sity series. I hope this will be available during the Spring 2014. I am also working on a mother-son relationship drama inspired by some traumatic events in my life.
What are the most important attributes to remaining sane as a writer?
Passion, positivity, and flexibility.
How much impact does your childhood have on your writing?
My childhood experiences are a big inspiration for my writing. One reader described The Sity as deeply psychological. I couldn’t agree more. I exorcise some of the demons of my childhood through my characters.
What was the greatest thing you learned at school?
Always questions things and don’t just accept something as the truth without doing your own research.
If you could meet any of your own characters, who would it be?
Probably, I’d like to meet Carina, since I have a crush on her. Lol. Ok, seriously, I would like to meet her because I think she is driven, complex, and has a big heart.
Do you have a favorite character among the ones you’ve invented?
Besides the one above, I really like the character Joseph. He is inspired by my father-in-law. I like Joseph because he’s overcome a lot of obstacles in his pursuit of helping humanity.
