What's the story behind your latest book?
I was inspired to write this short story based on a dream my partner had. The character of Elliot seemed so real to me that I felt I had to tell his story the best I could.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Writing and reading have been my two passions for as long as I can remember, so the motivation is simply in my love for words, stories and imagination.
Julia is a young, whimsical story about an outcast named Elliot who wants nothing more than to have a true friend. When he meets Julia, he feels he has finally found one. But Julia is not all that she seems.
