I have a couple of short story ideas, that I plan to have published.
Who are your favorite authors?
Lucy Maud Montgomery and Yōko Kamio
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Sleeping, eating and watching foreign melodrama's.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Often by recommendation.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
What is your writing process?
It based around my daughter's nap times, if I am lucky I can get into a page or two, while she's resting.
How do you approach cover design?
I try and find images that reflect the overall theme of my stories.
