Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am the author of The Omnia Iunctus Saga. I have suffered my entire life with various neurological disorders, but have used this to better myself and my storytelling.
Growing up, I didn’t have a lot of friends, so I spent my free time alone, coming up with stories and worlds. Fantasy has always been my greatest love.
I have currently finished and published one book, but I have many more in the works.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is called Form The Resistance. It is the start of the series and follows the main character attempting to do just that. It is an Urban Fantasy with hints of Technothriller.
Back when the book was almost done, but still unnamed, I was making a book trailer and when I finished the final line, it just clicked. The final line was…He must form the resistance.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t use a traditional styled outline. Instead, I have a full timeline, complete with everything from the beginning of the universe to many years after the series ends. Something is on this timeline for every single day that appears in the story…as well as major events and things like character births and deaths.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia are two major influences. I love the immense world and character building in LOTR and the Christian symbolism in Narnia.
What are you working on now?
I am working on the, currently unnamed, sequel to Form The Resistance as well as origin story spin-offs for a few of the characters that appear in the first book…Aloysius, Astra, Demetrius, and Viktor.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Definitely Twitter. I prefer Twitter over any other form of social media. I also have my own site, but it isn’t complete yet.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Never give up. I’ve wanted to be an author for years. I’ve written multiple things and scrapped just as many…but eventually I finished the story I was trying to tell and got it published. As cheesy as it may sound, my advice is…Never give up. You can do this.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Never give up. As said above, this may sound cheesy, but it is great advice.
What are you reading now?
I am currently reading a book on marketing, an excerpt from an unfinished manuscript written by a friend, a book on world building, and The Savior’s Champion by Jenna Moreci.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Market the first book while writing the second. All the while, interacting with and getting to know my growing fan base.
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?
Eve The Awakening by Jenna Moreci
Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
Sereine by Kurrie Hoyt
Caelestis by Kurrie Hoyt
