    Moody, crazy and grumpy at times (who isn't? ^_^). I prefer to live in my own imaginary world. This is part of my real world ^_^.

    Weird World of Mine
    Being alone is very synonym to me. It's not something that I can't avoid, but it is something that I choose to be. I have friends, lots of them. I enjoy every moment with them. But I enjoy more being alone.

    I love going shopping on my own. In fact I love doing things on my own. I can go anywhere I like without having to worry about others. I don't even need to go to places that I don't like. I can spend most of my time reading and searching for books.

    And where do you think I've got all of the ideas for writing my books? They resulted from being alone. It is the only moment where I can generate the plots. I can't just have it in thoughts and write it out. Sometimes I do need to act out the scene to get more feeling, to really know what is supposed to be written. And in my case, it works pretty well that way.

    People might think I'm a little lunatic, talking to myself, living in my own world, but hey, it's all paid off. To them, this habit might be crazy, but to me, it means money, with a big 'M". ;)

    Mysterious Me
    First of all, I am not mysterious at all, but that's what I want to be. I always dream of becoming someone different from others. And I reflected my wishful thinking in my teen's novel.

    That's how Mira (the character in Pengembaraan Fantasi) was created. Mira was my childhood wish. She is rebellious, stubborn, doesn't think much, always do things as what she wants, and yet clever. More cons than pros huh? But that's where the fun comes. Being someone who is unpredicted, chaotic and useful at the same time, will add more colors to life.

    When I was given a chance to write my first book, without a second doubt I know what my genre would be: fantasy, mystery, adventure. The reason behinds it? I always imagine something that can never survive a reality, something that can never exist. And the only way for me to make my imagination comes true, is to let it lives through writing.

    Writing to me is not only about entertaining people. I write my dreams, and share it with others. It is more on self-satisfaction. If people enjoying it, then it is a bonus. If not, at least I manage to please myself :)

    I started with reading The Famous Five, by Enid Blyton, followed by Nancy Drews (collected more than 100 books in her series but now all were gone), Hardy Boys, and few others. When I was a teenager, I followed Christopher Pikes' series, and now I'm obsessed with Charmed series. No wonder I'm following their paths in my writing :) In fact, my favorite TV shows/movies are Charmed, Card Captor Sakura, Heroes, Supernatural, Smallville, Lord of The Rings, Independence Day and many more. One common factor: all include supernatural elements.

    Some say my books have the-Harry-Potter influenced. But personally, they are more influenced by Charmed and Card Captor Sakura. And honestly, I'm not the big fan of Harry Potter. I don't know why, but it's the only million-dollar series that failed to penetrate me. I guess people have their own favorites ;)

    Me... and Writing
    I started develop the interest in writing when I was 12. I can still remember, I had this dream one night - a nightmare actually - and I thought, hey! Why don't I write about it? I did. I used an empty book and I wrote. Unfortunately it ended in only a page :) I couldn't recall what was my first story, but the nightmare I had, resides in me till now. And I vow it won't go wasted.

    The passion for writing went on and on. Each time I have a new idea, I would write it. And as usual it would end up in a page or two. Then I jump to another story. The cycle continues.

    Until I met with Kak Aina. That was the turning point for the changes in my life. I managed to finish up my first ever teen's novel - "Pengembaraan Fantasi: Pintu Cahaya". Highly motivated by the released of the book, I completed the second series - "Pengembaraan Fantasi : Sumpahan Gua Hantu" in just a month time. That was a record for me.

    The third series is still in the hand of Kak Aina. The title of it? Well, I guess we just have to wait for it ;)
