Qn 6: Lost in Motion is the story, or stories of thought from the perspective of a young boy becoming a man – are these the stories that went through your mind and did they relate to your rowing up?
The original short stories were mainly based on my fascination growing up playing action packed video games of all sorts- and watching horror slasher films- and I did not hang out around a lot of people, so I would just write in my spare time to entertain myself and others. As I’ve gotten older I have realized that it’s a talent within itself to be a creative writer so I started testing the market with my indie books.
Qn 7: As a young man yourself, where do you get all of your inspiration to write all your stories?
That is a hard question to give a precise answer- however I think my inspiration arrives from a mixture of a whole lot of media, like movies and video games, the best of what I like from them, and just with my original spins on it- and sometimes I reflect on the strangeness of my dreams for those unique twists in my tales.
Qn 8: What has been the most challenging time for you, and have you ever written about it?
The most challenging moment for me was around summer time when everything was going perfect and I ended up becoming severely ill- I was like great- this was supposed to be the summer of pure success ! However I did not let that hold me back- as I immediately went to write my third original story for Amazon at that time, BIRDHAZARD while recovering !
Qn 9: what is your most favourite story of yours?
My most favored story of mine- that’s a hard one to pick- definitely a tie between The Magical Train and BIRDHAZARD. I adore the professionalism, and dedication of adventure that I put into The Magical Train which explains its growing success. However I also love BIRDHAZARD since it was a break from the dreamscape world of fantasy, into a more, fun, daring horror adventure ! The absurdism was a big laugh at all my problems at that time.
Qn 10: So what is next for you do you have any plans?
For the future, as of right now I am starting to finish the manuscript of my first fully fledged out novel which I hope to query out soon, I have also picked up a guitar and I am exploring the possibility of becoming a musician
