- I think with fantasy, writers have so much freedom to create. I can come up with an entire species and get lost in its history and world. In the case with my angel trilogy, I created my take on angels. It gave me an endless universe with which to work. There are a handful of sci-fi/fantasy movies and books which inspired me to write my own. The original Star Wars Trilogy, Cowboy Bebop, Anne Rice's vampire stories, Willow, Lord of the Rings - all these have lit a creative fire in me at some point in my life.
- I love the bad guy in stories so I made my villain the hero. Laphelle is a Fallen angel. You don't want to mess with him, he is kind of a jerk. he's cocky, driven, scary and he's deadly. But though you start out hating him, I think you'll end up cheering for him in the end.
- At least two hours a day. It's about all I can devote of myself right now since I do still work a day job, and try to spend time with family and friends.
- How often do you feel uninspired? And what do you do to tempt your muse back?
- Just as often as anyone. Sometimes we force stories, writing too much without a break. There has to be a balance.
- What are you currently working on?
- I am working on wrapping up The Divided Trilogy. It's my epic angel story I wrote back in college and currently decided to revamp and indie publish for my readers. If you're looking for something new to read, something epic and unpredictable, you might give it a try. Though there are plenty of bad guys in it to hate and love, there are some good guys in there you'll really like, too.
