Hello! Thanks for visiting today and giving us the chance to find out a bit about you and your debut book. So, let's begin. :) How did you start your writing career?
One day I just ran with my imagination and began inventing a cast of unforgettable characters in a non-existent world that eventually came to life on paper. How exciting that is! I couldn't write fast enough! It was a healing getaway for me, and still is! I have many more stories to share in the future.
I'm writing it now. I never wanted Wanderamid's Crystal Ball to end. It feels good to be back!
What do you do to unwind and relax?
That rarely happens! I am very busy promoting my fantasy novel and am currently writing another.
Do you have a favorite quote, quip, or saying? What is it?
I have a few of them! The one on the top of the list is 'Anything is possible as long as you have the passion'.
What do you find most rewarding about writing?
The feeling is indescribable, really. When my words lead my readers into a place that I created from imagination and they tell me how they enjoyed it as much as I did, my heart fills with tremendous joy.
Is there a piece of advice that you have received that has really stuck with you? If so, what was it?
Yes. Always follow your passion, and never give up!
