Guest Post by the Author
If you knew you’d die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
If I were to die tomorrow, my idea of the perfect final day, would be having high tea with J.K. Rowling.😊
Who is your hero and why?
J.K. Rowling. Her story, and the adversity she has overcome, is just as heroic as Harry’s journey, and I see her soul bleeding on the page, throughout the series. If I can be half the author she is, I will have accomplished a lot.
What are you passionate about these days?
I am passionate about two new projects I am working on. One is a gaslight fantasy series called ‘The Guardians of Legerdemain’. A family of art restoration experts carry a heavy secret. Wizards and witches all, they have an ancient magic that is used to imprison the worst tyrants in history within their portraits and statues, a wizard prison of sorts. The first book, Tainted, involves time travel as our hero, Edwin, must chase down a rogue Napoleon, determined to change the course of history, and his demise at the Battle of Waterloo.
The second project is a LGBTQ retelling of King Arthur & The Knights of the Roundtable, with a focus on the injustices of the church, and a crown prince, confused about his sexual identity.
What do you do to unwind and relax?
I watch Master Chef, and Survivor 😊 I am also on the hunt for the next great fantasy series, but strangely, I didn’t like Game of Thrones. Not enough heroes, for my tastes, I think.
