Interview with Avrin Kelly

Describe your desk
My desk is a mess. I have notebooks, scraps of paper, sticky notes; a variety of pink markers and pens all laying around in chaos!
When did you first start writing?
I didn't start writing until I was 29.
I'm almost thirty now, so, it's been less than a year. When I decided that I wanted to be a writer, it was because I had one story to tell about one man: (my main character, Thierry Adler). But, over time, I started to get a better picture of his life, the things he believed in and the people he was/ is close to, and I realized I had many more stories to tell.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Discovering new characters and seeing how they get themselves out of trouble. It's all about who can be clever at the worst time. Whose quick thinking will save them from a disaster? There may be magic and monsters in my stories, but the things that most often save my characters are their own wits and ability to think outside the box.
What are you working on next?
An inter-dimensional hopping ghostwriter and his highly strange boss. The novel will be titled "Mr. Thorne"
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Starting a story or finishing one. Ahhh, I love the feeling of typing the last line!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, Netflix or listening to music... or making music... or sketching... It depends on the day.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I usually type something like "smart ass warlock" or "dresden". LOL
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, and it SUCKED.
How do you approach cover design?
With an open mind and a vat of patience. Sometimes the cover comes before the ending, sometimes after, every cover is different. Sometimes, when I'm stalled on a story, I'll work on the cover and it will help; other times, not so much...
What do you read for pleasure?
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader. I never leave home without it. Literally.
