Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I am actually surprised about my next book. It's still a mystery thriller, but it's a horror story that takes place in a small town in British Columbia. A bit different that my usual content but it will have the same fast pace that my readers enjoy.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When not writing I can often be found with a paint brush in hand, mountain bike between my legs or hiking shoes on my feet. Live life, experience life, enjoy life.
