Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing novels in 2007, after I showed my mother an outline of a short story I'd written with intentions of turning it into a graphic novel. She prodded me into writing it as a novel, instead of continuing with it as I'd originally intended, and soon I had a full-length manuscript with ideas for the second and third books. After writing the Fate Trilogy, I began researching and developing an epic fantasy series, which has yet to be completed. In between writing the fantasy series, I started working on the When the Dead Rise short stories to give myself a break when needed (I LOVE zombies) - always have and always will.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Sharing my stories with readers from around the world. Besides that, I love delving into a world, learning about my characters and discovering what motivates them. How the world has made them evolve into who I envision them to be and how that drives them through a narrative.
