I love reading. My favorite genres are fantasy, sci fantasy and paranormal. I enjoyed Stephan King’s book, especially The Shining and The Mist. I love several Armenian writers – William Saroyan and Paruyr Sevak.
Also one of my favorite writers is James Dasher with his The Maze Runner series.
Inspirations for the book?
Writing is my nature. I can’t imagine myself without writing. When I finish one book my mind begins to muse about the next story, starts seeking an idea. The life surrounding me, the books I read, the movies I watch inspire me.
Did you know you wanted to be an author when you were little:
When I was ten years old, I didn’t. But I started writing when I was already 16 years old. At first I preferred short stories, then poems and several plays. My first novel I wrote at age 19 which called “He”. It has never been published and it is in Armenian. Then my next work was The Godless which has been published twice, the first publication was in 2011 and the second in 2014.
I daresay I had a feeling I was going to be an author. I was always attracted by books.
Chocolate or Peanut Butter?
The weirdest thing you've ever done?
Oh, I’ve done several. I don’t know which one to tell. I don’t like planned life, my life is always unplanned and filled with a lot of surprises. I’m a fan of football. Sometimes I wake up and decide just put down everything and make a journey out of the country to watch a good football match.
I think the wildest thing I’ve ever done was my trip from Germany to Armenia by car crossing seven countries. I don’t mind to make it again though.
Do you need anything to write?
Music. I always put my headphones into my ears and write. Not just a random music. It must suit the scene which I write about. For intense the music must be fast, hard to describe the fighting scene or a fantasy situation. Writing about love I must listen to a slow and romantic music. Music brings the words I need to write down on paper.
How long do you write on any average day?
I usually write at least two hours in a day, when I’m working on a novel. When the idea comes I try to write about it as soon as possible. I just grab on it and don’t let it go. Sometimes I can write almost the half of the novel in a day, just not to let the idea out of my hands.
Give us the number one reason to read your book.
If you want something new, then try my books. There are a lot of similar books nowadays, there is almost the same meaning with different names heroes and heroines and in different places. Also the end of a lot of books disappoints. I try to finish my stories in the way that the reader would never expect in time of reading my book. This is intriguing.
