How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Writing in the furry genre of fiction and fantasy is different because I am using animals with very human-like personalities and abilities. Therians are my own twist on werewolves and other shifting creatures of legends. What makes writing these characters is remembering to add in those nuances that are part of that species like a swishing tail and those mobile ears animals have.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t be afraid to write about what you like and understand. In fiction and fantasy, nothing is too over the top and everything is possible.
I was born the youngest of three just outside of Philadelphia, PA. My youth was spent in Oklahoma until after graduating high school. From there, I went to Arkansas where I had two sons. During my stay in Arkansas, I started writing, not taking it seriously until I discovered NanoWriMo. From there, the next step was to actually get one published.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Believe it or not, the inspiration came from observing the early morning sales rush on Black Friday. As soon as I reached the break room, I was jotting down the first chapter in a notebook.
