How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I love to read and write a little-known genre called ‘magical realism’. When I read, I love when an author can take normal characters who live and work among us, but then give me insight on what makes their character special and why they have a story to tell in the first place. Whether it’s about psychic abilities, soul changing, or even paranormal activity, the key for me is that it’s believable–or at least plausible in some sense. So, I try to share that in my writing.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
If you love writing, never give up. If you don’t live, love, and breathe the written word, you should probably give up, as it will consume your days and nights. 🙂
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Since the beginning of the written word, storytellers have shared myths about supernatural beings. However, over the centuries, these supernatural beings have morphed into tales of vampires, werewolves, and superheroes that are so outlandish I find it hard to pay attention, let alone believe. Don’t get me wrong; I still enjoy a well-written story about vampires and mythical creatures, but I crave a reason to believe. I want some reasonable basis for the story.
The idea of a person shifting into an animal form that’s ten times the size of its human form, or a person having the ability to fly without the required body mechanics, makes little sense to me. But, I can’t discount that since biblical days, stories have amassed about sentient beings with superhuman strength.
CREATUS, from the Latin word meaning ‘created’ are the reason we believe in fairy tales—and monsters. Superheroes didn’t come about by being bitten by a vampire, a werewolf, or a spider. Instead, perhaps the same superior being who created us created them.
