An illustrator, comic artist, and writer with knowledge in animation, I use what I know to create stories like the ones I already know and love. You can find my art work on Deviant Art, Tumblr and Instagram by searching Detonya.
Describe your desk
Pretty tidy, I feel, with some of my favorite pictures I've drawn posted up here and there. When I have images of my characters hung up I feel inspired to write out their stories, as if they are depending on me.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
First and foremost, The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde. It was fun and tragic to my teenage self and really had an impression on me well into college. Really though, the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice were the books I really enjoyed growing up with, specifically The Vampire Lestat and Blackwood Farm. They were funny and dark, all while appealing to that romantic goth girl I had been too. After those it'd have to be Catch 22 by Joseph Heller because it was kooky and fun all while drilling in the chaos that happens when people are sent out to kill strangers. Lastly would have to be this childrens book series that I loved when I was very young called The Enchanted Forest Chronicles: Dealing with Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede. A tomboy princess living with dragons? Why wouldn't I have wanted to read that?!
Isaac, a cantankerous ghost, confronts the person who brought him to consciousness by delving into her memories and discovers a bond he never knew they would share, how far they would go for their obsessions.
