Would you call yourself a born writer?

            No. I didn’t even know I wanted to be a writer until three years ago. In Middle School and High School, English was one of my worst subjects. It was only after I started mentally creating stories in my head during the long commute to and from work that I finally reach the point where I figured, why not try and see if I can turn these stories into something more.

What was your inspiration for Awakening: Book One of the Berserker Chronicles?

            The idea came to me as my girlfriend and I were watching the opening scene of the first episode of The History TV show Vikings. I can remember the moment so clearly, even to this day. The main Character, Ragnar had a vision of Odin during a battle and BAM, the idea for Awakening came to mind. I then spent the next few days researching Norse mythology and fine tuning the idea. Then once I felt it was ready I started writing.

How long did it take you to complete the novel?

            Due to my full time job as an attorney, in the beginning I really struggled to find the time to sit down and write. Then one day I decided give writing during my lunch break a try and it worked out perfectly. I could shut my door, turn up my music and write for 45-60 minutes uninterrupted. Writing in only those short blocks of time, it took me close to three years to write Awakening.

What do you feel is one of the most exciting parts of your book?

            I don’t want to give anything away, so I will just say, for me, its the fight scenes.

What other genres have you thought about writing? What genres would you personally never consider writing?

            I have a few Science Fiction, Fiction and Suspense stories I want to write. 

What do you love most about being an author?

            To create beautiful and mystifying worlds and then share those worlds with my readers. I get such joy from hearing about how my readers enjoyed exploring the realms with Leif.  

What’s next for you?

            I turned in my first draft of Ascension to my editor the other week and while I wait to get the draft back, I am working on Book three Ragnarok.
