Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have never thought of being a writer! Sometimes, you start to discover things about yourself you have never known before! However, it is never too late! once this happens to you, just follow your intuition and passion.
I started writing in 2013, I published eight fiction and non-fiction books, write English articles on the internet and produced two documentaries, and compose songs. I wrote Sci-Fi, children, philosophy, spirituality, suspense, but the genre I love most is the Romance genre, that is why I always mix Romance with the other genres.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I always question myself: does the mind have a role in evaluating our beliefs? The Big questions of life always inspired me, so I wrote “Beyond Life” book in an attempt to have some answers
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t think that it is very unusual, but I always have hard times when writing fiction books, for the characters of my stories come alive, I can almost see, hear, smell every one of them! This sounds crazy but I believe that this happens to many writers as well.
