What do you read for pleasure?
Fantasy, horror, historical and a little of erotica.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Santiago de Chile but not in the center where everything happens, i grew up in the cummune "La Florida" a city whit just houses and houses and houses, a little amount of parks, two or trhee mall centers (i'm not sure), a lots of schools and other public buildings. It is a city where when you look out of your window you can't see any skyscrapers or any tall building apart for the mall centers. It is a beutifull place, you can see all the mountains around Santiago from there. But it wasn't what i wanted. Thats why i started to read and write and thats why all the people that likes to read do it, because when you open a book you close the real world and you travel far in your own mind.
When did you first start writing?
Like trhee years ago.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It think is the fact that maybe in the other side of the world is a person just like me that can find my storys and so i can find his/her.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on two stories right now: The first is Nazura that is a fantastic world where gods bring magic to life and... i don't what else i can say about it, it's going to be my first public story. I just wrote it in spanish, i'll try to write it in english before make it public.
