Aiki Flinthart

Biography

Aiki lives in Brisbane, Australia, with her husband, (Ernest), teenage son (Leonidis - not their real names, obviously), aging dog and directionally-challenged fish.
In between being a wife, running a business full-time and helping Leonidis with homework, she squeezes in a few hobbies, including:
Martial arts, painting, writing, reading, bellydancing and playing three or four musical instruments. Occasionally she even sleeps. Very occasionally.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I like to try new things - especially things my characters might need to do. So I do an eclectic bunch of things in my limited spare time. Archery, knife-throwing, martial arts, belly-dancing, painting, lute-playing. In the past I've also tried skydiving, abseiling, white-water rafting, bunjy-jumping, scuba diving, horseriding, various sports and random other things. Keeps life interesting - although the injuries are starting to twinge a little nowadays.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I've been writing since I was very young, so not really. But I do have a vague memory of a school age story involving a couple of kids getting lost in a cave. I think I'd just been on a spelunking trip up to the Chillagoe Caves in Far north Queensland. Clearly made an impression on me!

If you've ever played computer games and wished you could be your avatar, this is the series for you. When Phoenix and Jade are sucked into the game 80AD, they are no longer 14yo ordinary kids, but are now their 17yo avatars. Phoenix is a warrior and can't wait to kick-ass in a way he can't in his real life. Jade is a spell-weaver, but she just wants to get home. To do that, they'll have to play out the game and defeat the villain, Feng Zhudai. But nothing is as it seems, for this fantasy world is connected to the real world. If Phoenix and Jade fail, their world could fall to Feng Zhudai as well. And there's no unlimited re-spawns here - just seven lives. Once they're gone, you're dead. Forever. So Jade and Phoenix will have to overcome their differences and defeat monsters, druids, Romans, gods and their own fears in order to succeed.
