An Interview & Some News

Just in case facebook has hid this from you, this is my latest interview: Interview with European Geeks. Every interview always excites me and makes me happy. It's always good to know that there's someone out there that is interested in your work. European Geeks is an amazing platform. They're reviewing my manuscript Amethyst Epiphany right now which is the first in a projected trilogy.

I'm working on the fourth book of the Magic series currently. Florian and Lucille always protest that they don't get enough time in the books especially Florian. I try to explain that it's an ensemble piece that does center around them, but sometimes there's no pleasing those two. I already have rough ideas of what I'm going to do in the other three books (as this is a seven book series). I like to have a rough plot sketch so that ideas can develop as I go along. Sometimes the story takes unexpected twists right away. I love that! It's what makes writing both exciting and frustrating, sometimes, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I am in love with these worlds and these characters and I hope you are, too.

What amuses me is I already know the name of the sixth book but not the fifth. Sometimes the titles just come to me and other times it's not until I've finished the book that a good idea hits me. It's interesting how the creative mind works, and I won't pretend to understand, but I love the way I see the world and the interesting perspectives I garner even if sometimes no one else seems to fathom what I do.
