How long have you been writing?
I was deeply into poetry and creating short stories between the ages of ten through to my late teens. I switched to writing novel length stories around seventeen. I had written eight fiction pieces throughout my life. Writing has always been an extension of me. When I decided I would be walk the path of a writer, I created my ninth novel called Wantin. This is the first book I ever released to market.
What was the most challenging part about writing WANTIN?
The most challenging part about writing this novel was more related to it being the first time I would allow the world to read one of my stories. Any artist will tell you that there is a piece of them in whatever they create. I found I was conscious of the fact that everything I had previously written held a freedom of being captured in the absence of prying eyes. It is one of the reasons I never told anyone that I had decided to become a writer. I wrote under a pseudonym and focused my energies on developing a literary piece that I was confident would showcase my style and voice in a very competitive market place.
What do you enjoy the most about being an author?
The short answer is writing. I find the activity is pleasurably indulgent and to some degree selfish. I’m not sure about other authors writing process but I can tell you when I begin the journey of creating a new novel, I am fixated in that space of creativity until it is done. This has its challenges because I can’t fully remove myself from the ‘real’ world but I revel in it whenever I can afford the opportunity to do so.
Is this book part of a series?
Yes. The Enigma series consists of Wantin, Unrequited and Sated. The trilogy is more than a love story. It’s an epic life story about self discovery and the tenacity to be who you want to be in a world that would prefer you to conform. The main character in the absence of fear takes the decision that she is going to live her life to the fullest and will not settle or compromise when it comes to love. The right person is always worth the wait.
Do you have any works in progress?
I’m working on two items at the moment. I find working on multiple projects helps stimulate my creative outlook. When I need a break or am feeling a little unenthused about something I am developing, I go for a long walk and when I return I switch to another project for a while.
- First draft development of Quantum – Book 3 in the Soliloquy’s Labyrinth series
- First draft development of an unnamed script in the horror genre
