Here is a list of common questions I am asked. If you still have a question you want to ask me, you can contact me here.
- How long did it take you to write Rise of the Dragon?
This is kind of a hard question to answer. It took me several months to write the first draft, but writing a novel is more than just writing words on a page. A story is first created in the form of an idea, which I had planned years before I ever thought of becoming an author. I spent another few years turning the idea into a story by plotting out and structuring it. After I wrote the first manuscript, it took me about two years to edit and polish the story before it was first published. This comes to show you that writing a story is no simple task, but one that is fun, more than possible, and is worth it in the end.
- How old were you when you wrote Rise of the Dragon?
I was fifteen years old when I wrote the rough draft and was seventeen when it the book was published.
- Are you planning on writing a sequel?
In fact, I already have the story structured, plotted, and a rough draft written! I’m currently reworking and editing it right now. (Learn More Here)
- Is The Tales of Draco going to be a series? And if so, how many books are there going to be?
I have full intentions for The Tales of Draco to be a series, and it’s one I’m really excited for. The sequel was very fun to write and I know I’ll have just as much fun writing future books. As for the number of books in the series… I prefer not to answer it at this time (sorry about that).
- Are you planning on writing another book when you’re done with The Tales of Draco?
Yes and no. I have an idea for a story that is not part of The Tales of Draco, which may be written as a break from the series. I may write something else after the conclusion of the series.
- What made you want to write about dragons?
- What influenced you to become an author?
The fact that I loved to write comes from my love to read. There are many books I loved to read. I would say the author who inspired me to write the most was Brian Jacques. As I’ve said in one of my posts, a good writer is also a good reader.
