Get to know the writer:
1. What is your novel about?
It’s about a young prince who had no worldly experience, because his father was a paranoid recluse. Since you can’t rule a kingdom exclusively from behind a desk, things fell apart. Now he has to put it all back together.
2. What genres would you say this story is in?
This is mostly straight fiction with a slight religious tone. I call it Sword and Sorcery, but it’s more paranormal abilities than magic.
3. How would you describe this story in two words?
Good v Bad
4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?
Ooh that would be a coin toss between Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Avatar.
5. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)
I don’t listen to a lot of music, but my favorites are Simon and Garfunkel and Loreena McKennitt.
6. Do you have an all-time favorite novel?
That would be The Lord of the Rings.
7. What motivated you to write this story?
I just wanted to write something and this young prince came to mind. He of course would attain the crown, but it couldn’t be that easy. Hence the rest of the story.
8. If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?
I think I might enjoy talking with Leonard Nimoy. I’d also like to discuss LTR with J. R. R. Tolkien.
9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?
Family of course comes next, but I also love gardening.
10. What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?
I saw the add over on Crowdfire and thought I’d give it a try. It never hurts to try. If you don’t at least try, the result is always a fail.
11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?
Always try. Always try to be better. Always be willing to learn. And always write what you love. They say write what you know, which is good advice, but if you love what you write, for sure someone else will love it too.
