One of my hobbies since High School is reading fantasy novels. My favorite author is R.A. Salvatore and his Drizzt series. I would have to say he has had a lot of influence on where I take my writing and the direction it goes, but sometimes, my characters just do the walking and talking for me. They become an actual living thing inside of my story and I, as the author, am just along for the ride.
Writing for me is like releasing my ideas to the world. Having written and published my first novel, The Fate of Larik City: The Rise of Denrok, I have found many challenges in getting word out for my novel to the readers that read mainstream fantasy and science fiction. I'm hoping to change that here. If you would like to contact me about anything relating to this, please feel free.
