Second Chances
ISBN 978-967-5785-00-9
A mock fairy tale with enough action, comedy, wit and imagination to make you root for the chief characters.  Prequel to the harder hitting ‘Absolutely Done’.

Absolutely Done
ISBN 978-967-5785-01-6
An adventure, action comedy that is as full of slam bang action as it is in terms of witty comic exchanges, wise cracking and spirituality with a nod to mythology.  Light enough for the casual reader, engaging for audiences looking beyond flash and explosions and intense enough in action for those who wish to have a cinematic feel of brawn and adrenaline.

Granary County
ISBN 978-967-5785-02-3
An edible tribute to the spaghetti western genre, where the good sheriff and lawmen fight the evil villains. The characters in this imaginative satire are delicious with a deadly attitude to boot!

!Attention!
ISBN 978-967-5785-04-7
This is wild ride featuring displaced radio hosts, a reality TV crew, a pig and a ram who own a bakery and a host of bad GM vegetables who serve an attention draining villain and his sister.  This is a tale where a food fight equals a fight for survival.

Daily Doses & Vital Verses
ISBN 978-967-5785-03-0
This is a dual journey of poetic artistry and philosophy.
Vital Verses portion deals with poems that celebrate hope and faith in life despite its turmoil and contradictions. Daily Doses portion is the author’s sharing of philosophical reflections.  If taken one per day, the compilation lasts an entire calendar year!

Why did you become a writer…was it a dream of yours since you were younger or did the desire to write happen later in your life?
The idea of becoming a writer came about when I became aware of my abilities during my teenage years.

What was the inspiration for your latest work of fiction? 
My latest work of fiction is actually ‘Absolutely Done’ although I had ‘!Attention!’ released a little later.  !Attention!’ is a completed  humorous story lying dormant and waiting to be released.  Absolutely Done’ is inspired by a mix of hard core action, spirituality, comedy and mythology.  As good, evil, the grey areas and the amoral are part of existence, people can relate to that.

Do you tend to base your characters on real people or are they totally from your imagination?
Both imagination and real life experiences.

What was the most interesting research you had to do for any of your books?  Where do you go to do your research? 
My research if any will encompass real life observations, reference materials that are both static and dynamic (books, multi-media, Internet posted material)

How do you go from an idea for a book to the birth of the story?  Is the process the same for every book you write?  How long does it take you to write a book? 
Some of them took as long as two years because I was working full time and took time out to write in between work.  Some shorter works took about several months before completion.  Typically I would need a year to finish, from concept to rough draft, edits before the finalized version.

Are you currently working on any new book projects?
Yes I am.  More books in the future.  I have to jot down more ideas and snippets of action sequences.  Getting ideas for two divergent books simultaneously linked by a common thread.

Do you have any advice for beginning writers on how to write a book?  Do you have any advice for them regarding promoting that book once published?
First of all have your own style.  Next, write things that you are confident of carrying through.  Get as much exposure as possible without breaking the bank.  You don’t necessarily require payment for reviews.  If so, be wary of the service provider!

What is your favorite work of literary fiction and why?  Do you have a favorite literary author?
I prefer spiritual literary fiction.  The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran is an outstanding piece if you don’t mind the New King James Bible inspired style.  A well written, pithy work with philosophical and spiritual appeal.  Never ever equate length with quality.  It’s what’s inside.

Who is your favorite contemporary author?  Are you currently reading any contemporary novels?
I’m a very eclectic reader so I don’t normally follow someone unless they’re constantly appealing to my taste and ideals.  My current picks date some years back.  I also read action comics.

What’s your writing schedule like?  When do you find time to write?
I may not have set times to write but I will find time to jot down my ideas.  Ideas are most vital.  It’s usually when I’m not working on any immediate assignments when I find time to write.  Sometimes I make sure I write something before I turn in for the night especially when I’ve enough notes and material to work on.

How did you find your publisher?  What was your journey to publication like?
I am my own publisher.  I found my eBook enabler and retailer when I contacted Research in Motion, the makers of Blackberry. It has been a long way and I could’ve reached publication stage earlier if not for the literary agent and publisher conundrum that I had to face.  In fact I’ve faced almost every barrier.  It’s easier to be inspired and write than to land an agent or publisher.

Do you have any writing idiosyncrasies? 
None that I know of!
       
How have your friends and family received your career as an author?  Are they supportive?
Not all friends know that I write and have released work.  Not all relatives know that I write to start with!  I come from a diverse family and not every one reads or speaks English fluently.  I’ve friends and relatives who are supportive.  Only they are aware of what I do and have been striving towards.

What’s the most challenging aspect of writing for you? ~ POV issues; using too much passive voice and not enough active voice; trouble creating active and engaging dialogue; using too many similar words in starting sentences; or something else?       
The most challenging is to have a constant stream of ideas or ideas that are sustainable and pliable.  Once you have those, words will follow.
