Any fun facts about you that we do not know?
I did almost two years of my schooling from a roadhouse in the desert at the top of Australia. My school was in Port-Hedland, a three hour drive away and so we used the School of the Air service. My lessons with my teacher were done over a two way radio with my class who were kids who were scattered all over the Pilburra (NorthWestern desert area).

When I first started seriously writing I would just sit down, write and see where it went… I mean I had the main storyline in my head but on the road to getting there I would just fly by the seat of my pants. It was a bit random and I never knew what was going to come next, which was always exciting. However in writing the second book, I refined my process a bit and began with a whole lot of plotting. I use the program Scrivener to write and organise my files and so when I sat down at the laptop with thoughts of where the storyline was going to go in the next instalment, I set up a file for each chapter and scene and wrote a small synopsis for each.

Afeclin walked nervously to the entry of the cottage. He held his breath as he passed over the threshold. A little cradle was the only piece of furniture left in the building. Afeclin touched the cradle delicately with one finger. All of a sudden he fell backward onto the floor as an image of the fire burst into his mind… He had seen a horrified face that screamed amongst red hot flames. Found beyond the Elvin borders, Afeclin, a human child, is taken in and raised by an Elvin King. Now grown and longing to learn about the mystic arts, he embarks on a journey back into a land now unfamiliar. Accompanied by his elvin friend, Wolflang, they leave their homes to seek out their destiny. Unbeknown to Afeclin and Wolflang however, the warlord, Moorlan and his confederate, a dark mage, are preparing to bring war to the peaceful Land of Marrapassa, putting their lives and those they care about, in danger.
