Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I started writing Portal of Vaal at age 12. It started as fan fiction for players on the BossSMP server for Minecraft. Everyone loved the stories and kept asking me for more. After a few years, we had a full novel.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a new book, tentatively titled Menace of Vaal. The hero, Motorthud, may venture over to the dark side.
