What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Characters are what interest me most. I spend a lot of time getting to know my characters before and during their creation. Physical characteristics, temperament, personal history, psychology: the things that comprise each living soul magnetize me and energize my writing efforts.
What are you working on next?
My focus at present is a futuristic sci-fi novel, set in a dystopic, mechanized society. Written in first person point of view through the tortured mind of a man afflicted with nihilism, nostalgia and dysthymia, the story serves up deep existential and psychological introspection. The novel will bear heavy themes: suffering, free will, angst, and death, to name a few.
In this genre-bending fantastical journey of speculative fiction, Julia enters the underworld of Zabel, descending deeper into the dark caverns of her mind. She must relive an unknown past, bearing the amulet which magnifies her sage-like powers as a dream walker. Will she accept her fate before time runs out as the human world threatens to disappear? Will Julia find the courage to remember?
