How long have you been writing?
Since I was in high school. When I got to college I started joining fanfics and written RPGs. After I graduated college I decided to start writing to publish.
What was the first story you wrote that you remember? (Is it finished, and has anyone read it?)
I was trying to write a paranormal historical romance about vampires in England and then it branched out where a scientist was doing experiments where he took prisoners from jail and took cells from animals and merging them with humans to make shifters, people who were highly advanced and could be used in the war against Napolean. Sadly, I never finished but it will hopefully get written in the future.
Tell us a little about your favorite character to write about.
As of the right now, I dont have a favorite character.
Tell us a little about a fantasy world you've created.
Atalanta is a planet outside the Milky Way galaxy which was created by a goddess, Gaia, and it took on the appearance of Earth as Gaia was intrigued by the planet and people. However most of the "people" are mythic creatures (Angel's, demons, dragon shifters, other types of animal shifters). Humans had been one of the races Gaia created. The ocean currents on Atalanta are the opposite of Earth, there are mountains, deserts and castles where the various groups live.
Tell us a little about your current work in progress. How's it going?
I've just started it, I'm a pantser on this particular project, so it's a little slower than a previous project I did.
It's about an 18 yr old who was born from the Goddess Gaia and a hybrid dragon shifter. She has the ability to destroy Atalanta, something discovered by Gaia's brother, Chaos.
Chaos caused suspicion to fester into the hearts of the Atalantans and one night one of the humans entered Gaia's home and attempted to kill the infant. Afterwards, Gaia chose a handmaiden to send the infant to another place so she would be protected.
The story takes place 18 yrs later on Earth when Chaos takes on the form of a powerful human, the President of the United States. He knows his sister's child is on Earth and he destroys the country's infrastructure to find the girl before Gaia sends messengers to bring her home.
