When did you decide to start writing stories? Although I wrote quite a bit in my teens, I stopped for a long time and only picked it up again last year. I was going through a very difficult time in my life and writing became an escape for me and helped me through my anxiety and depression.
Why sci-fi versus the other genres? Although my Travelers series has elements of several different genres, sci-fi has always been my preference in both reading and writing. I love weird creatures and fantastical landscapes. Post-apocalyptic settings are my favorite.
Who is your favorite character in Travelers and why? My favorite character is Sasha Roborovskiy. He is a supporting character in Travelers, but I loved him so much that I decided to make him the main character of the sequel, Chromeheart. He's my favorite because his many flaws make him human and an underdog to root for. He's colorful and funny, and although he often has a hard time deciding what is "right", he's determined to be the best person he can be and lift others up in the process.
What are your plans for the next writing project? I am currently in the middle of drafting the third and final Travelers book. In addition to that, I have quite a few ink illustrations to draw for the sequel, and I would like to write more short story prequels for my newsletter subscribers.
Dogs or Cats? Rats! My pet rat, Moonstone, passed away earlier this year. He was a sweet little guy that would beg for snacks and liked to snuggle in my lap.
