Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
It will sound cliche but writing has always been my passion. It was only until recently that I got my head hammered by something, and realized that if I don’t try to grab that dream ‘now’, there may not be a ‘tomorrow’.
Black coffee runs through my veins.
I also noticed that I am a cat magnet. When I feel tired and uninspired, I play a dance pad game in the arcade house near my place and am proud to tell you, I am currently at Level Crazy.
I aim to bring M/M romances that could make people ‘feel’.
Currently I have written two. One is a stand-alone and the other one is the first in a series.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is called ‘Yael, Wake Up’. I would say that one of the reasons why I came up with this series is due to the recent events politically and economically around me. However, the main reason for the ‘Wake Up’ series is I love reading man to man stories on the dramatic, kind of painful side. Although I love HEA endings, I love torturing myself.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Instead of unusual, I guess it’s more of a ritual. I could NOT write a word without having my fill of caffeine. I guess a lot of writer do feel that way? But really, it’s like the coffee taps into my lazy, sleepy head and so, a no-coffee day would be me in an unproductive beast mode.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Funny that the book that really awoken my masochistic side about sad and painful stories is in no way connected to M/M romances. It is a story about this woman who rescued this injured, sick horse. I CRIED a lot in this book and I discovered the pleasure of crying over books. It’s ‘Chosen by a Horse’ written by Susan Richards.
What are you working on now?
I am a bit on break. As soon as resting my hands from heavy typing is over, I’ll be working on the second book of the ‘Wake Up’ series.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Honestly, I don’t know yet. This is my first time using a site to promote my book so maybe next time I’ll have something to say based on experience.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
I have this on my wall. “You are not getting any closer when you let laziness win!” I wrote it because I think, more than writer’s block, it’s laziness that really gets into me.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
“Never worry about the delay of your success compared to others, because construction of a palace takes more time than an ordinary building.” –anonymous
What are you reading now?
I am re-reading some Stephen King novels as of the moment. I am also busying myself with blogs of self-published authors because I want to learn more about the craft and the indie world.
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?
I would definitely bring ‘Chosen by a Horse’ written by Susan Richards, ‘Rose Madder’ by Stephen King, ‘The Heir’ by Paul Robertson and ‘The Protectors 3 – Retribution’ by Sloane Kennedy.
