Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I like to spend my time with relaxing activities. I enjoy working out, doing martial arts, hiking, stand up paddling. And creative things like graphic design or drawing. I'm also a big fan of movies as it is a form of storytelling.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I've been writing since I was very little. Most of the stories didn't make much sense but I remember writing about warriors alot. I even incorporated some of the general elements from those stories when I started writing my books later on.
