INTERVIEW

Why did you choose to self-publish?

I chose to publish non-traditionally mostly because I’m a control freak. I didn’t like the idea of passing my creation onto some company to look after so I decided to look after it myself. I did submit my book to one agent but when I got the rejection letter back it was adressed to someone else (they’d mixed up our addresses!) I figured that if they couldn’t handle an address then they probably couldn’t handle my novel!

Which authors or books influenced your writing the most?

I’ve always loved reading. I think my writing was most influenced by Tolkein, Raymond E. Feist, and Sarah Douglass.

What are your current projects / What are you working on next?

The final book in the Lost Child Saga; Hordes of Anarchy, is in its final editing phase – it’s currently on preorder and will be published in September. As well as that I’m also working on a science fiction series which I’m super excited about. I feel that females still don’t get a fair shake in sci-fi so I wanted to write a sci-fi adventure with a female lead, along came the Nova Chronicles.

I also really want to write a zombie series… and a murder mystery series (similar to Sherlock)… and about a million other things!

Anything else you would like to mention?

The only thing I’d mention is that I love to connect with readers and writers and I’m always happy to network if anyone wants to contact me.
