Biography

While about to step into college, writing has always been what I've enjoyed doing the most and I find the time to write between school, mostly. As it's well known, sleep and food are luxuries we can afford to ignore.

I'm your typical history nut with a passion for Sci-Fi and fantasy, and a tenancy to ramble on for hours about things people don't necessarily care about. Combining all that into one slightly outgoing teenager, writing seems to be my best bet!

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
That's a bit hard to say, really. I don't think my ten-page book I wrote in grade four counts - not that you could consider it as such, but I digress - but if we're looking timeline-wise, I'd say perhaps around 2004, when I was about seven years old. My first book, however, came around when I was eleven.

Not that I'm ever going to publish it, mind you; I have my pride.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Ah, Maledictus Aether has quite a story to it. It roughly boils down to wanting to attempt to write Steampunk for the first time, and since I had never dabbled in the genre before, I decided to give it a try. Honestly, I didn't expect it to get very far, and believe me I am quite pleased with the result.

Suffice to say that the book has become one of my favourites I have written, and I plan on writing more Steampunk novels in the future - as a matter of fact, I'm in the process of figuring out the idea for its sequel, though it doesn't follow the same characters.
