Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Two books from my childhood stand out for me. All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot, which I read over and over, tapped into my love of animals and made me laugh. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis sparked my love of fantasy and showed me how fantasy can be used to impart a powerful message and life lesson. A great story gets under your skin and even now, decades after reading them, these stories elicit fond memories.
How do you approach cover design?
For both books in my Makai Series I used a cover designer to help capture my vision. I knew I wanted to show underwater scenes that depicted the mood of the story and could not be happier with the results. The cover should pull a reader in and ignite interest to learn more as well as be artistic and attractive.
