Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up initially in Kenya, East Africa, from the age of 3 years, having been born in India, after which my father started working with the East African Power & Lighting Company; after that my family came to Australia while in I was in High School. This has caused my writing to be on subjects such as Africa and India, as they still hold a place dear to my heart; as well as, of course, Australia. I also read many Sci-Fi/Fantasy books while growing up, which has also influenced my writing. I love Fantasy
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing offers me release, and often the words that I write reflect a certain aspect of my life, or my past. The greatest joy in writing, for me, is knowing that my readers are enjoying my work
