Biography

I've always been a rather private person, still am in fact. Publishing a book wasn't easy for me, as it meant showcasing myself to anyone who picked up my work. It took me a long time to muster the courage to finally do it. I've always believed that an author's work is a window into their mind, knowing this and being rather self-conscience, I've always been a tad afraid to let anyone have a peek into mine.

Ruling Body has been something I've been working on for a number of years, trying to perfect it and of course, enjoy it. These characters are dear to me, and at the end of it all, seven books in total, I hope others will enjoy the stories, the characters, and their situations.

Once these stories are finished, I plan to settle into another science fiction series I started a number of years ago. We shall see what the future brings.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing back when I was in grade five. I never finished the project I was on, but then I was really young back then. I had this really epic story I was working on involving ninja's in the early part of my time in high school, but I eventually went a totally different direction later on. I never finished it, but I never got rid of it either. Once I'm done with the series on the Comp-Terx and Zoadiuns, I plan to get back into that.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was about birds. Back in grade five, our new teacher read us a fictional story in which birds were displaced from their home because of human development. The question was posed, what if they were to fight back? I blurted out, "Let's find out," and I began to write about how they had finally had enough and were going to fight to keep what was theirs. For the most part, I was using world war II movies as inspiration. In my head I pictured ducks in particular with steel helmets and machine guns taking off from a long dirt run way, bound and determined to stop humans from destroying their homes.
