What is/are your favorite movie(s) and TV show(s)? Do not watch much. Currently I do catch Outlander on a semi-regular basis. My guilty pleasure, Big Brother, is about to start too.
How long have you been writing? Since the age of three.
What was the first story you wrote that you remember? I wish I could forget some of the early stuff, but my mother has a collection... a story about a vampire kitten was one of my earliest, and a year or so later the guerilla pea saga began.
-Is it finished? Ha.
-Have you ever let anyone read it? LOL, good Gods no. No one except my mother. She on the other hand, loves to drag these copies out and share. No, you may not contact her.
-What genre (romance, fantasy, etc) was it? Fantasy, horror...
Who is your favorite character that you've written about? I have one character, Declan O'Mara, who has made several appearances. His name and core character remain the same, but he has been altered to fit a couple different genres.
What is your favorite fantasy world you've created? Feel free to tell us about it. It would be the one I am currently in the middle of developing.
What fantasy project(s) are you currently working on? How's it going in terms of progress? I am currently on a LitRPG genre kick. I am creating two worlds- one the 'game' world which is sword and sorcery based and the 'real' world of the players involved in the game which started out as a world being more similar to the real one we live in, but it has expanded to grow into a more sci-fi/futuristic place.
Do you plan on taking advantage of the beta reading and/or excerpt posting sections? I will post excerpts and perhaps more.
