Writing related

What inspired you to write your current work:

What genres do you read and write: I read and write a lot of urban fantasy and paranormal novels. Sometimes read horror. Rarely romance.

When did you start publishing with Ouroborus: 2016

Current work-in-progress: The Lost

What can readers expect from you in future: My writing career has taken a bit of a hiatus as my university, personal and working personas take more importance. However, I am working on The Lost and will get it out as soon as it’s ready.

Which of your own characters do you relate to most, and which is your favourite to write: I feel I connect and relate to Rya most of all. Probably because I have spent so much time in her head and some of my personality is in her. I am looking forward to writing from Dylan’s point of view as the series progresses. He is a charismatic, sarcastic and cheerful character that I believe will be interesting and fun to write.

What upcoming or recently released Ouroborus book are you most eager to read and why? I am looking forward to reading Blank. I have had it on my shelf for a few months now and I have been waiting for time to read it.

Either or

Hardcover, eBook or paperback? Paperback

Chocolate or chips? Both (depends on mood)

DC or Marvel? Marvel

Blue ink or black? Both (depends on mood and what it is used for)

Indoors or outdoors? Indoors

Spotless work space or is there a desk under all that? Bit of both

Coffee or tea? Neither
