Sydney Alykxander Walker

Biography

A college student mastering in procrastination, writing has always been what I've enjoyed doing the most and I find the time to write where I should really be writing my assignments, but as a wise woman once said: "Ain't nobody got time for that." 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, mythology, the supernatural and fantasy, and a tenancy to ramble on for hours about things people don't necessarily care about. Combining all that into one rather "loud and proud" introvert, writing seems to be my best bet! It's worked for the last ten-ish years, anyways.

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?
Approaching Farewell is another "pilot" novel, if you will, as I attempt my hand at the supernatural genre. I had previously written up the beginnings of a draft two years ago, but it had never really taken off so the idea just sat there. Yet, in January of this year, I decided to give it another go; I redesigned the main character and the setting, doing a lot more research than before and refining the basic plot. It quickly grew into something right after my own heart.

The story of Sage and Elijah is, by far, my favourite. I have loved every moment of its creation, and am sad to see it end but am also glad to finally share it with the world. I've weaved some of my favourite myths and folklores into the novel, also attempting my hand at writing modernised myths, and am extremely satisfied with the result. Also, it's going to officially be the first item checked off the list of my secret, grand project, so I really can't complain.
