I think some people would say that I act a little weird from time to time. They don't understand what I do and why I do it to begin with. Maybe they don't care, who knows? So, here it is: I'm not normal. I'm weird. There, I said it. But, isn't it true that in this world we all need to be a bit crazy, a bit 'not normal'?

Writing and reading can be a lot - distraction, therapy, fun, escapism. Sometimes I wonder why I got hooked on the urban fantasy genre and why I write. Which one is it? Fun? Therapy? Escapism? I honestly don't know. I only know what it feels like to write. When I write, it feels like I can create whole worlds just by myself. It feels like I can face truths and see things that aren't really there like no one else. It's an addiction I can't get rid of, and I love it.

The thing I love most in stories is when the main character is not entirely good or flawless. Makes it all bit more realistic, more 'human.'

Did you ever wake up from a dream and thought it had all really happened? As in for real? So much so that you couldn't tell reality and dream apart? - I did. I woke once from a nightmare. In the nightmare I was lying in bed and something terrible happened around me. It was as if the dream merged with reality in the exact moment I woke up. And for a moment I couldn't tell dream and reality apart. One of the scariest things that ever happened to me.

A jolt. A small hitch in the rhythmic beating of my heart. Dèjà vu didn't even begin to describe it. ... My heart stopped, my breath jostled forward, shock rippling through my system. It happened again. For a few p...

Well, you could stare at a white wall until you were blue in the face, it would never be more than a white wall. The same was true for the master vampire. A vampire was a vampire was a vampire. Period...
