Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first wrote in high school during halloween for which I dressed up as a journalist. For weeks after I filled the small notepad with words, front and back of every single page. I've been throwing words into notebooks and screens ever since. Studying real dialogue, watching classic British drama, imitating my favorite writers and figuring out just how to state the absolute. Not as I see it; as it is.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The joy of watching a complete character in motion, surprising and second guessing you. When Aaran, Buddy or Masurani throws my best laid plans to the wind I know I'm a good place. I am a firm believer in the life of a character who may only stand for a few moments in front of your lens. Everything else is hard: Characters are awesome.
