When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

Late in life. Very late to make a difference.

How long does it take you to write a book?

Under pressure, I can crunch 50k words in a month or less. On my own devices, it takes forever.

WhatΒ is your work schedule like when you're writing?

Whenever I can, since I'm not a professional author.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

I'm quite easy to read, a real page-flipper

How do books get published?

In my hellhole of a country? By having big wig contacts and/or winning big name contests.

Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

Internet, and rarely from real persons. I'm seclusive and socially inept. Kinda like Lovecraft but with a cat I can call in public.

When did you write your first book and how old were you?

My first completed novel came in 2016, when I was 36.

What do you like to do when you're not writing?

Mostly creative stuff like drawing, programming and papercraft, unless I'm in a quagmire, in which case I'll spend my hours idling on the web or playing PSX games emulated at 10 FPS in my toaster of a netbook.

What does your family think of your writing?

"Yeah, I'm glad you're writing and all, but you gotta land a job now, a bird doesn't eat while it's flying" -Daddy Dearest.

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

The characters have a mind of their own and if I want them to do something I have to railroad them and hope for the best

How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

One. And is far from my favorite.

Do you have any suggestions to help others become better writers? If so, what are they?

Proofread everything, give it to someone to proofread, and proofread again.

Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?

Not much, but they've given me some hints on what to do and what to avoid on Wattpad.

Do you like to create books for adults?

I write stories, I think on the target demographic later on.

What do you think makes a good story?

Believable characters, a compelling storyline and a couple of nicely placed plot twists.

As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

An integral comic book artist.
