My mobile handset and laptop.
Describe your desk
I do not have my own desk.

When I was about eleven years old.
What's the story behind your latest book?
It is about survival from the lowest point in life and courage to reach a dream and never ever giving up hope that one day a light will shine upon me.

What are you working on next?
I am revamping my novel entitled, "Barefoot Daydreamer."

That I am healthy. I can breathe well...feeling well everyday is the greatest gift from God.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I walk in the park, going to the cinema, going to the gym, relax in the sauna, chill out with people I know, listening to music and watch the graph of stock market.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Browse the Internet.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. The three deprived young brothers. They had separate lives when they were young. They reunited when they were all grown up and all had successful lives.
