M.C. Edwards

Biography

A kid once asked me, "Why do you like books so much?" I looked around the room like an idiot for a few seconds before mumbling the only thing I could come up with in reply, "Real life is just that little bit too boring." As much as I thought it was a stupid answer at the time, I think that it really does sum up what I love about reading and writing. I like a fantasy or sci-fi world that closely mirrors reality, but with just a tweak of unbelievable to it; a believable delusion if you will. I love reading something crazy that still produces a sliver of possibility on the very peripheral of my mind.

I write what I would like to read. If someone else likes it too that is a huge bonus. Most of the things I write are aimed at teens, predominately because I work with kids for a living, but I also write for adults.

I am influenced by just about any fantasy and sci-fi stuff. I love to be amazed when I read. Action, adventure and anything which warps my concepts of the world and challenges my perceptions.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
Well, my desk is a mess, there's no denying it. It is covered in a mass of scribbled notes and sketches which I maddly capture when inspiration strikes. There is also a generous scattering of collectibles and figurines from my favourite films, books and comics.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on an aceage surrounded by thick bushland. There was plenty of old gullies and scrub to run around in, and it soon developed into a fantasy world where my neighbours and I had epic adventure, some of which still inspire my writing today.
