Interview

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself, your hobbies and interests.

I'm a beach lover. I spend most of my time on the sea. I love boating and diving. I love traveling and seeing the world. I love reading a good twistys suspense novel that keeps me up late.

2. When and why did you start writing books?

I've been writing travel articles for over fifteen years. My debut novel, A Deep Thing was published in 2016 and July 2021, I released Pseudocide: Sometimes you have to die to survive.

3. What made you decide to tackle writing as a career?

I love to read. I love to travel and I love a great story. Creating a story that makes you feel is my life's quest.

4. Which one of your books or characters is your favourite?

In my latest novel, Pseudocide, Sunday the main character, is my favorite character because she is strong and trying to change her destiny. But I also like Hudson. I would like to spend a day with Hudson. I printed out a picture of him from the internet that captured Hudson. He was sitting in front of me when I wrote his chapters. And, if you read the book, you would understand, I would like to go on “Hudson’s Ten Buck Tour” in Las Vegas.

5. Which one of your books was the hardest to write and stretched you the most as a writer?

My second book is about faking your death and starting all over again. My protagonist is younger than I originally created. We have so many digital footprints today, that I wanted to be as accurate and realistic as possible. I had so many rewrites.

6. Who is your favourite author and book?

Seriously, I cannot pick just one. But, one of my new favorites is Blake Crouch, Run.

Of Woman And Salt by Gabriela Garcia

Everywhere. Travel and life.

Traveling, reading, and beaches.
