"Writing in the science fiction and fantasy genres is freedom"

This September, Jonathan Yanez will be chatting with Alessandra Torre about his science fiction writing. So we asked him a few questions to get to know a little more about him:

BB: Where and when do you like to write? 

JY: I like to write in the early hours of the morning before the sun rises. I have an office at home where the work gets done.

BB: Is there anything - furnishings, art, equipment, etc - you always like to have around you when you write? 

JY: I use a standing desk. 

BB: Who are your influences? 

JY: Michael Crichton, Max Brooks, Steven Pressfield. 

BB: What are you reading right now?

JY: Chronicles of Narnia 

BB: What book would you recommend for a great late summer read?

JY: Dracula 

BB: Have any of your characters ever surprised you? How?

JY: Always. I don't outline so they're always taking me down paths I never would have planned on my own. 

BB:Cat or Dog?

JY: Wolf

BB: Tea or Coffee?

JY: Coffee

BB: Tell us in one sentence why readers love your book LEGEND RISING.

JY: Fast-paced action, humor, with relatable characters you can feel good rooting for. 

BB: Tell us in one sentence why you love writing - in general, and in your specific genres

JY: because it is what I was born to do. Writing in the science fiction and fantasy genres is freedom.
