Why I like reading fantasy

I enjoy reading fantasy because I get to enter into worlds that are completely different than mine, where anything can happen to anyone. Plus it's adventurous. Meet creatures that can only be found in fantasy.

Why I like writing fantasy

Writing fantasy, to me, is like when an artist is given a blank canvas with a pallete of many colours, and given free reign to create anything he likes. I like writing it because I am not bound by limits, and it is extraordinary genre, out of the ordinary where my mind can wander for a while creating things I know will never happen. 

Fantasy books/authors I enjoy

My favourite fantasy books vary from what I am currently reading. Some of my favourites are Mortal Instruments,  Trudi Canavan books (all of them)

I’ve been writing since

Wow, wuite a while. When I was about12, I really loved reading mills and boons. I loved the happy ever after. (Yeah that happens until one growns up. :D) So after reading a book, I'd start recreating the story, but with different characters and a slightly different plot, but they'd still end up having a HEA.

My greatest accomplishments so far as a writer

I've managed to make someone smile after reading one of my books.


  1. Gosh, I'm jealous! I bet it's beautiful there in Vienna. Thanks for joining us, Cece!

    1. Thank you, Alesha. SO glad to be here. Oooh it is beautiful. :) And cold..LOL

  2. How did you move from Kenya to Vienna? I'm so awed by all the beauty those countries have and I have yet to see!

  3. I visited my daughter when she lived in Kenya, at Karen near Nairobi. I loved the people, who were so open and loving. Now, she's moved back to Australia. Her teenage sons have returned to live close to their father. You must have so many stories to share.
