Interview with Daniel Lee

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I cannot remember exactly the first story I ever read, which was probably nearly 30 years ago. However, I do distinctly remember that one of the first stories that had an impact on me was the Faraway Tree series, by Enid Blyton. I adored all the children's books by Enid Blyton, which prompted me to actually think that I could also write a book myself.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I am currently using the Moon Reader, installed in my Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone. It's not perfect, but it serves me just fine.
Describe your desk
Messy with various papers and stationery strewn around, and in a corner there is a special clock made out of cardboard, bought by my wife from a specialty store in Taiwan.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing before I was ten, though at the time it was mostly for essay writing competitions instead of purely for the sake of writing.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I do, very well in fact. However, the story was so bad that I have since destroyed it many years ago, to prevent it from ever having the chance to surface. Probably a wise decision too.
What do you read for pleasure?
I have a rather diverse interest when it comes to books.
Fiction, non-fiction, biographies, fantasy, science fiction, medical name it.
I believe every book serves its purpose to transmit information, and it is my utmost pleasure to soak up on all types and forms of information.
