The Other Side of Life (Elves, Urban Fantasy, Cyberpunk Elven Trilogy, Book 1)
The Other Side of Life (Elves, Urban Fantasy, Cyberpunk Elven Trilogy, Book 1) 

A thieving duo’s world turns upside down when an Elven rogue uncovers the heinous dealings of a mega corporation. Anya and Leticia are partners-in-crime who steal for a living. Their world turns upside down after a chance encounter with fellow rogue, Ithilnin—the enigmatic leader of an Elven band of thieves. A scuffle to prove who’s “the better thief” transforms into more than Anya and Ithilnin ever bargained for. They retrieve the missing piece of an ancient poem, before getting caught in the secret dealings of a mega corporation. What they uncover threatens to alter
the very essence of not just human life, but the other side as well. Elven intrigue, cyberpunk action, and a deadly dose of danger come together in The Other Side of Life [Book #1 in the (Cyberpunk) Elven Trilogy].

What will readers like about your book?
It brings together the classic elements of the fantasy genre, with the contemporary elements of the cyberpunk genre.

Why did you self publish?
Because indie publishing is speedy, efficient, and offers an author full business and creative control ;)

What is your writing process?
I read, write, love and live (with equal intensity). I keep going with a story until I feel it's complete.

How long does it take you to write your first draft?
Anywhere from a day to several months (depending on the length).

What inspired you to write this particular story?
During a brainstorming session, I wrote the words "cyberpunk" and "elves" together. It motivated me to try and come up with something cool, original, and relevant.


Quote from Nin (Elven rogue / protagonist):

"That’s sad. How plastic and artificial life has become. It gets harder and harder to find something…real.” Nin interlocked his fingers, and stretched out his arms. “Real love, real friends, real body parts…"
