Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I currently reside in Rutland VT. I am employed full-time as a Certified Tumor Registrar. I have three post-secondary degrees. An associate’s degree in business administration, a bachelor’s degree in organization management and a master of science degree in health services administration.
This is my first of hopefully many science fiction/fantasy books. This series of books, Land of Jonrah, will be at least three books long.
I enjoyed reading many science fiction/fantasy books. It is my favorite genre. Some of my favorite science fiction/fantasy authors are the late Robert Jordan, L.E. Modesitt and Terry Goodkind.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I am currently working on Book 2 of The Land of Jonrah series. It will be at least a three book series. As stated above, my favorite genre is sci-fi/fantasy. I have been wanting to sit down and write a book for sometime. One day I just decided to bite the bullet, and about a year later, my first book was done.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not really. I always keep 3 x 5 cards handy in case something comes to me when I am out and want to write it down before I forget it.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Robert Jordan, L.E. Modesitt, Terry Goodkind just to name a few.
What are you working on now?
I am currently working on Book 2 of The Land of Jonrah series: The resurrection of Argent.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’m not really sure. I usually just boost a post on Facebook, but for this particular genre that doesn’t seem to work as well. I did a Google search for free ebook promotion sites and this site was listed there. This is only the second site I have visited so far.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
It’s not easy and it takes time. It’s been almost a whole year since my first book was published. And, as I said, I am working a full-time job. I do a lot of my writing on weekends and days when I’m off. I have to schedule the time. I’m one of those people who has to plan things out.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
I can’t remember anything specific at this time.
What are you reading now?
I am currently reading through my 2nd book, The resurrection of Argent. Hoping to have it ready to publish by the end of this week.
What’s next for you as a writer?
On to book number 3.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Probably all of my books I have on writing. I still consider myself to be a newbie author and I am always going back and forth between these types of books for inspiration.
