Frequently Asked Questions
How many books do you have out?
Four. The first two books of my fantasy series The One and the Other are out: The One-Sided Coin and The Damned Ones. I've also published a poetry chapbook titled Sensuality. and a full-length poetry collection Where Have We Come From, Where Are We Going?
Where did you get the concept for The One and the Other Series (TOATO)?
It came from a lot of different places, and this idea is so old I honestly can't remember what initially inspired. I do know that the Ghost is loosely inspired by the black smoke monster in Lost and it's called the Ghost because of the song "All That I'm Living For" by Evanescence. I had this idea in mind for years before I started writing it, so I really don't remember how I came up with all of it.
How long did it take you to write The One-Sided Coin?
How many books will be in the series?
There will be five main books and a prequel in-between each main book, so nine in total. It's a lot!
