Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I'm a software engineer, so I spend my time working with code, logic, algorithms, and application designs. It's a creative process and I enjoy it, but its very structured and logical. Writing is also a creative process, but it's much more free-flowing and dynamic. There are no rules or requirements that limit what you can do. The world is at your fingertips and you can take it in whatever direction you want. It's a refreshing change after dealing with code, performance targets, and time deadlines from 9:00 to 5:00.
What are you working on next?
Instruments of War is the second tale in the Havenrealm Series. The rough draft is complete. I am working on refining it and adding the level of detail that it needs to convey what I want it to say. I plan to have it ready for publication in 2019.
