  • First, can you give us some background about yourself?

  • I was put into the habit of reading by my mother since I was young. English was my favorite subject until I got introduced to Science. I have pursued a career in Science but have always stayed in touch with the side that loved to read and fantasize.
         I did not get into writing until I watched the movie Hellboy 2: The Golden Army where I just fell in love with the antagonist, Prince Nuada. His end was tragic and something I was unable to accept. So, I started writing fanfiction where he was the main character. My story has been read by thousands and received over a 100 reviews.
         This experience gave me the confidence that I could write.
     
  • What have you written?

  • Graveyard Rose- A Gothic Fantasy Romance
 
 
  • Are you currently working on anything?

  • Yes, the second book in "The Rose Chronicles".

  • How much research do you do for your writing?

  • I do background research for the history and culture of the places where the story is set. 

  • What is your process like in the midst of writing a book?

  • I try to write at least a 100 words each day. Sometimes, I would write over 3000. I try not to force myself because it will make it seem like a chore. I like to enjoy myself when I am writing.

  • What does your routine look like when you get to the editing process?

  • It is easier to be in the editing process. I am much more efficient at this stage and also get very excited as I polish each chapter.

  • Do you have any quirks or rituals that help you achieve your writing goals?

  • I love listening to music in the background. Also, tea helps!

  • Tell us about your work space.

  • I use a rather large table, almost the size of a dining table. I like my laptop, my journal, my cup of tea and everything else within reach. The big space also makes it appear less cluttered. 
 
 
  • Are there any software or apps that help you in your writing process?

  • No. Good old MS Word is what I use.

  • What do you do when you lose focus? Any tips for getting it back?

  • I try not to force it. If I am stuck in a plot, I would just relax and watch a movie or read a book. Worrying and obsessing never helps me. Sometimes, a chat with a friend helps clear my mind. 
     
  • Tell us about your publishing process.

  • I self-published through Amazon. I did all the formatting myself and quite proud of how well it turned out.
     
  • Where can people find you and your work?

  • My book is available for free on Kindle Unlimited. For purchasing, go to the Amazon Kindle Store.
