To get the stories out of my head and share them with others.

Very character driven.

What’s the hardest part of writing?

Finding the time to do it.

Do you have any advice for new writers?

Find someone to write with, but not necessarily together. But that too can be a great inspiration.

All the best to you

Thanks Brynjulf and good luck with Wind in the Blood.
