I love forest, long walks, especially on the beach, and reading while having a good cup of tea.
I hate strong smelly cheeses and waking up early.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I guess it was when I was twelve or thirteen. I loved inventing stories as long as I can remember and while playing with other kids, I was always the one who created the plot of our games. But the idea of writing it all down hadn't occurred to me until I read "Penrod" by Booth Tarkington, the book series that I love very much. And at some point, the main character, Penrod, was actually writing a fiction story about a detective who was sort of his personal invented hero. So, that was when I first thought about writing my stories down.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Actually, that's the question I cannot fully answer yet without disclosing details from the upcoming books of the series.
The plot of "The Raven Boy Saga" sort of grew out of one curious situation that ended up being somewhere in the middle of the series. And even though "Raven Boy" is the first book of the series, it was the last one that occurred to me.
I promise to come back to this question after the part in question is out; for now, I can say that the idea of the book was born when I was in high school, while I was sitting and yawning through yet another boring and unbearably long-lasting lesson.
