When did you first start writing?
My earliest memory of writing was when I took an old comic book story and rewrote it into prose form. I didn’t really take the idea of writing seriously until high-school when my English teacher encouraged me to ‘put pen to paper’ as it were.
What's the story behind your book?
The story behind Green Eyed Burn is a complicated one. It had a long gestation period. It first started out as a short story. The core of which makes up most of Chapter 4. Then it was fleshed out into a script, which makes up most of the first third of the book, that my friends and I filmed one summer. But I knew there was more to be told. These characters needed to be examined. So I just sat down and started to write.
