Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I have always written about myself, my life and the surrounding environment since I was a child. I like creating and telling stories.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The Unsatisfied Traveler is the story of a person who lives in the future and travels back in time. In the future that I describe in the novel, people's bodies are engineered to be "asexualized". The protagonist goes back in time, but nobody believes him/her story and he/she decides to write a book. The second character from our era reads the book, and gradually finds similarities between his life and the main character.
