Darian Smith Interview!

Where did the month go? It seems like I say this every month, but it’s always true!

Today on our Monday Morning Author Interview we have Darian Smith. He’s the author of the Agents of Kalanon series, winner of the SpecFicNZ competition and a fast-paced story of a retired agent pulled unwillingly back into service to save the world. Let’s talk to him!

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

In my teenage years. I actually started writing my first novel at 16. It was terrible, of course, but I definitely had the bug and there was no stopping me after that. My biggest problem, I think, is that I have more ideas than time to write them all.

What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

I’m still most often working a day job as well so my writing schedule is mostly in the evenings. I’m a bit of a slow writer as I tend to edit as I go but when things are going well I spend an hour or two after dinner writing. Actually, if it’s going well it will be much longer than that and then I struggle to get up in the morning due to lack of sleep, but that’s a whole other issue!

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
