Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
One afternoon i was thinking back to when i lived in British Honduras ,now Belize ,as a kid and how much things had changed. I started to write a short essay and before i was through it became a full length book Child In paradise..
What is your writing process?
I suppose I should have one but I really don't, most of my books start out being based only on one paragraph. Writing fiction is like living real life you never know for sure what the day will bring, and most of the time there are twists and turns along with plot developments that just pop out of nowhere and surprises me just as much as it does my characters. Fiction is like being in a flight simulator, you can do things that would kill you in a real airplane and still live to tell about it.. It's about the same with fiction you can venture into areas where you would never tread in real life, sometimes when I really get stuck or bored there's Murphy's law.to fall back on and I think what is the worst thing that could happen right now.
