I love creating alternative worlds to retreat to when reality just doesn't do it for me. Everyone needs a little escape every now and then, writing allows me to share my private worlds with others that may be interested.
What is your writing process?
I begin each work with an outline. Then I proceed to seat-of-the-pants writing style. It is effective for getting the work out quickly but editing becomes a nightmare.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in an impoverished area and yes, it has influenced my writing immensely. Growing up I had always wanted to be some place other than where I was but when you are poor the only way to make that happen for free, is to create the world yourself.
How do you approach cover design?
I am a nature-lover. I try to have some type of natural background. I am not too picky with it. I am open to prairie fields, large bodies of water, space photos, even a tree on fire if I feel it will catch the eye of an interested party.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a gamer! When I'm not putting lines to paper, I like running through Azeroth silencing this, stunning that, and occasionally trolling trade chat. Also, I enjoy cooking. There is something about being praised for my culinary prowess that I find quite satisfying.
