Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I make my living as an artist and (trying) to make it as a writer. I have always been passionate about reading and writing from a very young age. I have been writing sci-fi and fantasy genre stories from the age of twelve and have continued for a few decades! I finally decided to publish my first novel in 2014, the Guardians of the Crystals saga which is a mixture of several genres (science fiction, fantasy with a touch of romance). I have written several short articles that are online on different subjects, but the Guardians of the Crystals is a work in progress. I just released in 2018, my third novel in the series, Amun-Ra which continues the saga from book two (Herculobus). I have started writing a novelette which is a preface to the three novels and deals with the three male characters that become involved with the main character during the series. More or less a backstory on E’jah, Enkarath and Amun-Ra. This should be published within a few weeks, then I am starting the fifth full-length novel that continues the story from Amun-Ra.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Guardians of the Crystals: Amun-Ra (Book Three)
Being a lifetime student of ancient civilisations, with all the study and research I have done over the past thirty+ years, I wanted to give a vision of our world as seen through the eyes of the ancients that once inhabited our beautiful planet.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I always write with music playing in the background, genres like Globus.
