Can you tell the readers what Wucaii is about?
Wucaii is about returning home after a long time and worrying about what you’re going to find there. It’s about how people change and how they stay the same.
Aelana is a different type of character. How did you come up with the idea for her?
One of the things I like to explore in my work is the question: what makes us human? With Aelana, I try to answer that question with someone who is part human, part dragon. She isn’t fully in either world, but she has the ability to move between them and sees things from an outsider perspective. I always knew I wanted a hybrid from when this story was first conceived, if only because I have a fascination with them.
There seems to be a lesson for others to learn when it comes to Aelana. How important is
There are the cliché lessons, such as don’t judge a book by its cover, but I think the most important lesson in this story is that we’re all works in progress. None of us are perfect, we make mistakes, we love, we hurt, but we can’t let that hold us back. We need to follow our dreams and do what we need to do, even if it breaks our heart.
Kalen plays a crucial role in your story. A choice somewhat was given. Not to give anything away about the story but would you have done the same thing?
I honestly don’t know. If I had to choose between love and destruction, I would like to say I would take love, but if I’d been hurt badly before, I don’t know if I would want to go through that again.
Will there be more stories starring Aelana in the future?
I’ve batted the idea around, and I’m still undecided. I have several other books I need to work on, then if Aelana wants to have another story, I’m sure she’ll let me know.

When writing Fantasy stories, what do you feel is the most important thing people should know?
That even though the story is probably incredibly far-fetched and the place doesn’t really exist, the struggles and hardships of the characters are universal.
Once again, if you could please tell the readers where they can find you?
