When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
I have been writing ever since a child so writing was always part of my life.
How long does it take you to write a book?
I have a very unusual and irregular writing pattern, it happens in extremes: I write 40 pages one day and then I rest for a few weeks. I surrender completely to the flow of inspiration and my muses. It took me 7 months to write Ocean of Love, which is about 200 pages long.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?
The self-discovery process.
Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
I am very happy when someone connects to my book's message and the reception of my books was very positive so far, so I am very content in this regard.
Does writing energize or exhaust you?
It energizes me during the writing process when I am creating and connecting to the flow and after I finished a part I usually realize I am completely exhausted.
What is your writing Kryptonite?
Being overwhelmed by the magnitude of the story I am trying to tell.
Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
I stick to originality no matter what.
What authors did you dislike at first but grew into?
Can't really think of one.
At what point do you think someone should call themselves a writer?
As soon as writing brings pure joy and elation in that particular person's heart.
What do the words “writer’s block” mean to you?
I think writer's block happens just before we break through our own limited perceptions and decide clearly that we will create something amazing.
Are there therapeutic benefits to modeling a character after someone you know?
What comes first for you — the plot or the characters — and why?
I find them completely equal parts of any book.
How would you describe your book’s ideal reader?
Completely open minded, thinking outside the box and a free soul.
How much research did you need to do for your book?
Very little as most details came through quite easily.
Tell us more about your book/s?
I write about the underlying, yet most significant elements of our existence like the soul, reincarnation, energy, dreams, extraterrestrials, destiny and purpose.
My reincarnation novel "Ocean of Love" is about an extraterrestrial soul coming to help Earth throughout a myriad of incarnations during important periods of human history.
My poem book "The Violet Waves" is a soft poetry compilation on love, dreams, manifestation and cosmic resonance.
