Can you please tell us a little about yourself with 5 fun facts?
  1. I’m very unpredictable. 
  2. I like to always be right, no matter the argument. 
  3. I like to eat peanut butter straight from the bottle. 
  4. I have a little brother and sister who seem to think I'm the most annoying person on the planet. 
  5. Most guys I know don’t understand why I'm such a huge football fan and like action movies. 
When did you realise you wanted to be a writer and what was the very first thing you ever wrote?
A couple of years ago, I decided to give the world of the authors a chance. I don’t remember correctly but I think the first thing I ever wrote was a song lyric about a girl who could fly away.

How do you come up with your characters? Are they based on real people’s characteristics?
I didn't realize that some of the characters were when I finished writing Dominion, mostly me, but other than that, the rest of the characters were created.

Who designed your book cover and why did you choose that particular design?
A very awesome artist named Daniel designed my book cover. I described in detail what I wanted and we ended up with the cover I have now. I love the finish work, and I choose to have the cover look like that because I myself wanted to see a book cover that if I saw in a bookstore couldn't help but be attracted to.

In one sentence, can you tell the readers why they should read your book?
Readers should read it because it has its flaws but when all is said and done, Dominion is a must read.

Do you have a favourite non-spoilery scene or quote from Dominion?
There is one scene in Dominion where Abigail, the girl in Pink, is in a life and death situation and the only thing she has to defend herself is a fire extinguisher.

What’s next after the Dominion and when is it due to be released?
Dominion is out TODAY!!! And what’s next after that is the release of the second book.

What’s one piece of technology you cannot live without?
My music player, I never leave the house without it.

When you are writing, do you have a set routine that gets you started or just go with the flow?
I just go with the flow, sometimes when I'm done with a scene I'm like ‘Oh, so that happened.’


Tea, coffee or hot chocolate?  Tea!
Sweet or savoury?  Savoury.
Cats or dogs?  Cats!
Day or night?  Night
eBooks or paperbacks?  Both
Favourite all time book? Harry Potter and Gates of Paradise.

Thank you Melody for stopping by today
