Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I was in my early twenties. I had done some commercial copy writing in Broadcasting school. which eventually lead to creative writing and screenplay courses in college. My degree's focus was kinesiology, but I always found time for those writing courses. I really enjoyed them.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am venturing into the epic fantasy realm for the first time. The story, which I suspect will be novella length, is entitled, The Dawn of Limcat. It is about the rise of a powerful sorceress who is living in exile and hiding from the sorcery faction that overthrew the monarchy of her native land. I hope this universe - the world of Lanza - becomes the stage of an ongoing series.
