Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am seventeen and currently published my first book. Its genre is experimental with hints of surrealism, filled with nihilistic overview. I wrote most of them when I wanted to kill myself.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Luth. My mind inspired me. Yep, that’s the answer. Also, I would like to thank my bunny.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Yes, in-fact I write mostly when its time to sleep. I can’t close my eyes and dream–they just make me tired and the desire to pen down my jumbled thoughts would fire up. Most of my poems have almost the same words–I can’t sleep
What authors, or books have influenced you?
James Joyce’s Dubliners, Howie Good’s Little tragedy and Charles Bukowski.
What are you working on now?
A novella, revolving around LGBT+ and physical disability.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Awesome gang is, wait for it, awesome. Bookbub is really popular but their cost just blew my mind. Facebook and oh! Minds.com
Do you have any advice for new authors?
You can’t force yourself to write just like you can’t force yourself to shit; it will hurt if you do. Write because it comes to you out of nowhere when you are sleeping, brushing your teeth or cleaning your sink. Most importantly, don’t stop writing.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Not forcing myself to write, it worked miracles.
What are you reading now?
“Motorcycle diaries” by Ernesto “Che” Guevara.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Probably getting a degree in psychology and having more sleepless nights.
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?
Little tragedies by Howie Good.
Dubliners by James Joyce
Sense of an ending by Julian Barnes
The communist manifesto
