Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
There is always a moment of clarity while in the writing process. Where my hands are moving faster than my mind and then vice versa. The characters speak for themselves, and the story becomes self propelling.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a full novel set in the world of The P'yang. The P'yang is a rebuilt hyper-capitalist Pyongyang set thirty years in the future. The story is a noir thiller with a strong cyberpunk framework. Check out Edition to get a taste of this world.
