Why are you writing a science fiction book?

I’ve always wanted to write a book and since I love science fiction it just made sense to start from there! Some of my favourite movies include Signs, X Files, Independence DayThe Arrival and Fire in the Sky. These movies have inspired me to come up with my own sci-fi ideas and base a story around them.

Will you create a paperback version too?

Yes, a paperback version will be made available.

What’s next for you after The Morgan Project?

I’m going to write the screenplay for The Morgan Project. I’ll be using the industry standard script writing software…Final Draft. I would love to see this story made into a film some day! Also, there could be a sequel to the book!! We’ll see :)

Do you ever take a break from working?!

I don’t class it as work, it’s play! So I guess I’m on my break already ;)  Seriously though, I take plenty of breaks and love going for hikes, bike rides and travelling the globe. Spending time with family and friends is really important to me too!

Do you have any advice for other aspiring writers?

Just keep writing and believe you can succeed! Many people have become successful writers and you can do the same! Your passion can be used to drive you forward and overcome any obstacles. Don’t forget to have fun too! Being a writer doesn’t mean you have to lock yourself away from the world for days at a time. Take regular breaks and make sure your family and friends get to spend some time with you too! Don’t give up, keep writing :)

Outside of writing, what else have you been up to?

I have worked closely with my dad (David) for the past 16 years to help build up his BATAK sports training and leisure business.

How can I contact you?
