What makes you passionate about writing?

Writing enables me to look at the ordinary and see the extraordinary. It gives me the opportunity to take the mundane and see the wonder in it.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

That’s an interesting question. I didn’t write my manuscript in a traditional way. My book was published in a serialized format. I wrote and submitted chapters of my book to my editors at Bigworldnetwork.com, after it was polished it was released online. When forty-nine chapters were completed, ready to publish in book form, I got to do a final edit on everything I’d written so far.

All told, writing that way it took me two years.

What makes you passionate about writing?

Reading is what makes me passionate about writing! I’ve loved books for as long as I can remember. I was raised in a family that values art and literally learned my ABCs from beautifully illustrated fairy tale books, books on mythology, and even comic books. I discovered The Lord of the Rings when I was 11 and fairly quickly read just about every fantasy book I could find in the bookstore. I began writing after that—because I’d run out of things to read but still wanted to live in those worlds.
