How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing a diary for seven years. I was more into music and art for most of my life. I only decided to start writing Fantasy in May 2016!
What is your most recent literary/artistic project?
I published the book ‘Lillith’ on September 3rd 2016. It’s the third book in the ‘Adventures Of Xanthus’ series I’m working on.
What inspires you to write?
All the stuff I grew up with: 80’s and 90’s cartoons, Megadrive and Playstation games, and Heavy Metal music. In addition to that, escaping from the rules and confines of this world we live in is always great. Inside your imagination you are free to do whatever you want!
Who is your favorite author and why?
The team who created the Transformers cartoon in the 80’s. The whole thing is sword and sorcery but with robots. When I was a kid, I was in another dimension when I use to watch it. That is what I want to do with my books, create another world that is an escape from this one.
What advice can you give to other authors or writers?
Writing a book is only the beginning! You have to keep finding ways to promote it! If you don’t believe in it who will? You have to keep it alive, keep pushing it!
