Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My life as a writer began at sixteen when I first entered National Novel Writing Month. In a fit of madness I had that book released into the wild. I’ve since captured it and returned it to the darkness from whence it came. Since that day, though, I’ve written a number of (unpublishable) novels, and a dozen or so short stories.
In November 2017 I released Sentinel Code, the first book in The Dragon Striker Chronicles. A month later, I released the prequel novella to it, The Alchemists’ Bane, which is an exclusive download for mailing list subscribers. Now I’m hard at work on book two!
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Sentinel Code is my latest novel. It was inspired by Pacific Rim, steampunk, Russia, and dragons.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Brandon Sanderson is probably my #1 influence at the moment. Closely followed by Matthew Reilly.
What are you working on now?
The Dragon Striker Chronicles Book Two!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
“Inspiration isn’t sitting and staring at the wall until something clicks. Inspiration is sitting and WORKING until something clicks.” – Brandon Sanderson
What’s next for you as a writer?
To get a few books out in The Dragon Striker Chronicles and just keep writing.
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?
#1 would definitely be the Bible (New International Version, to be precise).
#2 The Final Battle – C.S. Lewis
#3 The Way Of Kings – Brandon Sanderson
#4 Ice Station – Matthew Reilly
