J Leigh, author of “Way Walkers: University”, was kind enough to grant me an interview after I reviewed her “Choose Your Own Adventure” type book/game for Examiner.com.
So Leigh, for those who may not have yet played “Way Walkers: University” or who have not read my review, can you give us a short synopsis?
In a metaphysics driven society where freewill is law, your choices are your own as you attend the most prestigious of magical schools. Learn to master psychic Ability, fight monsters, argue with an Angel, cut classes, befriend unusual races, chase ghosts, and navigate through an exciting city full of in depth characters in an exquisitely detailed world.
Are you planning a sequel?
I have several novels in the works, as well as the “Way Walkers University: II”. The first traditional novel in the Way Walkers world has been signed by Red Adept Publishing, and should come out sometime early 2014.
What inspires you to write?
Life? I know that’s the cliche answer, but it really is true. I’m a very character-driven writer, and I love just looking at the people around me, and wondering how they would react if their world was different. I love the mysteries of life, and love conjuring-up unconventional answers for my characters to discover.
What are you currently reading?
“Artifical Absolutes” by Mary Fan.
How long did it take you from concept to print to publish “Way Walkers: University”?
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Find balance between taking constructive criticism and becoming too critical of your own work. Learn to recognize what’s solid and good about your style and what to let go of to make your writing better. It’s hard to learn, but it will help you sleep better at night.
Just for Fun
Dark Secret? I’m dyslexic. This makes spell check the single greatest invention in the universe for me.
Favorite Jell-O Flavor? Butterscotch pudding.
Midnight Craving? Salted caramel peanut butter truffles. OMG they are good. (The Bookworm agrees. *nom* *nom* *nom*)
