Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
This book is about a young man named Hawk trying to reinvent himself in a world where things are going absolutely awry. Genetic engineering has recently become the latest new thing, and people are turning into superhumans, but not in a good way. Hawk has to face the decision to either let the world be taken over by these stoic armies or lose everything to trying to stop them.
Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?
I think particularly young adults would be interested in this book. Especially comic book fans. It has stunning illustrations and a good sense of action/adventure to go with it.
Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors to choose from, which are your favourites and why?
My favorite book is “The Catcher in the Rye” by J. D. Salinger. I like this book because it perceives the simplicity of human life, and the complexity of human relationships. Especially the ending.
Qn 4: What guidance would you offer to someone new to the writing work, or who was trying to enhance their craft or business?
Definitely take it step by step. Don’t try to rush the process. Writing a book may take years, and then there’s everything that comes after that. It’s a gruelling process, but very rewarding. If you are just getting into writing, don’t be afraid to get ideas from others. Believe it or not, your parents or friends are the best audiences to critique your writing. They come in with an open mind, and any questions they have, or anything that’s unclear, shows that there is something faulty in what you wrote. Never take it personally, though. It is always a way to help out.
