Give us an insight into your main character. What does he/she do that is so special?
The main character for Lucky Valentine is Marcus, a war torn solider whose falling in love with Ana. Although he’s seen so much death from friends and family, yet he can’t help to see the things in front of him.
What are you working on at the minute?
Looking into doing a poetry chapbook and some other short stories (time travel romance), The Lucky Valentine, and some novels.
Here’s the blurb for Lucky Valentine: Ana was on an internship in London, England. One day on browsing in a tiny bookshop she finds an old valentine stuck into a book . Before she knows it she finds herself in a London under siege, the blitz of WW2. Rescued by a haunted soldier, Ana is plagued by emotions. Will Ana be able to go back home? Will she want to?
