Thank you for this interview!
What do you do when you’re not writing? If I’m not writing, I’m promoting. If I’m not promoting, I’m working my day job, cleaning the house, spending time with my family. Or kickboxing.
When did you start writing? I don’t believe there was really a time that I can remember that I wasn’t writing. I grew up writing short stories and poems. I began authoring, in 2015.
If you could go anywhere in the world to start writing your next book, where would that be and why? Australia or Italy. I want to go to the outback because it’s always been a dream of mine. And Italy, because that’s where my heritage is. I want to eat all the food, fall in love with the scenery and drink all the wine.
You write a little bit of everything. Which is your favorite to write and why? I personally prefer the second chance trope, I like to give redemptions and feel that everyone should have a do-over.
If you had 4 hours of extra time today, what would you do? Write. I would lock myself up in a room, turn up the music and write. Or sleep. I miss a sound night of sleep..
Where would you like to set a story that you haven’t done yet? In another country. I prefer to write about a landscape that I’ve been before to get the facts down and to have it realistic. I wrote THE BRUTE by having a fictional city and that was difficult even though I could just make it all up.
Where do you get your best ideas and why do you think that is? I’m a people watcher, we all are by nature. I get a lot of my ideas from wordplay, by someone swiping something off their face, by someone shouting something, by two people having dinner… all situations are an opportunity for me.
What are you currently working on? Do you have any new projects released in the coming months? If so, tell us about them. I have THE BRUTE releasing 06/15 (EDIT TO SAY, JUST RELEASED THIS MONTH/ LAST MONTH?) I’m currently working on a project that I haven’t given a name to yet. I have one manuscript fully outlined and one about 60% in the process, with a release for August-ish.
