Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm a full time student studying for a degree in Graphic Design, I'm a part time musician and recording engineer, I build websites, graphics, and videos using the Adobe Creative Suite, and I love to cook. More than anything else though, I love to read. I just don't get to do it as much as I'd like to thanks to the aforementioned distractions.
What are you working on next?
Wow, I have a huge answer for this, but for your sake I'll only share my current writing activity. While Walking Wolf Road is in the final stages before release, I am writing supplementary short stories to help me flesh out the World of Shadows timeline in my head, while simultaneously penning the rough draft of the first book in the World of Shadows trilogy, Of Wolf and Man. These stories are very different from Walking Wolf Road, while WWR was a Young Adult Urban Fantasy, the World of Shadows is on the far edge of Urban Fantasy, spilling over into the Horror genre even. These stories are very dark, and not exactly recommended for young readers if you catch my drift.
