Do you have another job other than being a writer?

Did you ever think you would be unable to finish your first novel/novella/short story?
Yes. Many times and that's probably why it took me so long to get it done.
What inspired you to write?
All the worlds I visited and friends I made through books. I wanted to do the same for others. Being able to escape into a good book also saved my life a few times.
