Meeting the author of the first fantasy book I liked seemed to be more like a fantasy to me when I was in Manila. I never thought we would meet and even talk. I was star-struck. My speech led me down poorly that I stuttered unnecessarily.
I used to dislike my name because it usually creates confusion, followed by spell check, followed by an explanation, what does it stand for or where it came from. It changed when it became a conversation piece with Mr. Brooks. He find my name quite unique and asked me if he could use it or include it in his lexicon. "As an elf perhaps?" I asked. It might end up as a troll name he said with a laugh. However he wants to use it, it's gonna be awesome. I just really wish not as a troll or a witch.
A very funny guy. He isn't fond of twitter, facebook or blogging. He tried to blog once but it didn't turn out the way it should be. So now, he blogs semi-annually. Funny story
