I went from writing epic fantasy to children’s literature because I had a change of heart. However, unknown to Kip, adventure was waiting for him just around the corner. Do you outline? Why yes I do, and it goes something like: incredible breakthrough, coffee, concern, amazed at my own thoughts, more coffee, hate my own […]

My market plan is to wing it. Harper Lee has been a huge aspiration of a writer for me and one day I hope I’ll write something good enough that I can effectively claim her as an inspiration. If we don’t count the few months back in 2013 when I was toying with it as […]

Being historical fiction, many supporting characters actually existed. Don’t make fun of me. I think that Dumas’s The Three Musketeers was also hugely influential as well as Charles Dickens. Marx and Hitler were poor plagiarists. The other ephemeral – a secret hidden within the lyrics of a song. Did you get your book cover professionally […]

I was turned down from several MFA writing programs, which was disheartening, and decided to just write something and get it out there. However, when there are days that writing isn’t coming easily, I often go back and do some editing then to get myself refreshed on the story and see where I can go […]
