Where do you get your ideas?
I get ideas from everywhere. I get ideas from books. Sometimes ideas come from where I think a book could have gone with its story. I have gotten ideas from movies, real life, and even dreams. The ideas may take time to develop. I also keep a journal of ideas.
Are your characters real people?
I cannot do magic, but Turik is a part of me. I always thought it would be cool to be able to do some of the things Turik could do. Lighting my hands of fire (without getting hurt) would be a lot of fun. I tried to make Turik a realistic hero. He struggles with good and bad. He has to learn to control his anger, even when he is doing what is right.
More to be written later.
