Ten years ago, a human brain was created and installed into the control centre of the manmade Sana Island. To most people, it is known as MindOp, a non-living entity operating in the background of their lives. Only a girl named Myth knows better: his name is Dragon and he is very much alive. And after ten bodiless years, Dragon has a dream that will change everything and will put his mind and Myth’s life in mortal danger. There are powerful forces that don’t want the truth revealed and they’re coming for Dragon. But where do you run to when you’re already everywhere?

1. Where did your idea for writing Dragon's Mind come from?
Daydreaming, as usual. I do that a lot! I'm intrigued about what makes a person 'real' and 'human', so this story explores that interest, but in a light and adventure-filled way.
2. Did you model either Dragon or Myth off of real people?
Myth definitely has a bit of me - I can be snarky and sharp tongued, but I'm really a softie inside.
3. Who was the most fun character to write and why?
Actually, this whole book was fun to write. I loved Blade, who doesn't feature heavily in the first book, but he's just got such attitude. I enjoyed trying to imagine Dragon's perspective (ie observing reality without a physical means to engage with it).
5. How long have you wanted to be an author?
I've been an author since I was seven. By 'author', I mean someone who is compelled to write. I've always been writing something.
