Maxmordon, is a wonderful young man from the country of Venezuela. I felt compelled to interview him because I believed he would have a unique perspective on the writing world. I was not disappointed, I hope you won't be either.
What is your favourite food?

Hard to say... I think I have to say breaded steak with broccoli and mashed potatoes or perhaps cachapas, that are sort of corn pancakes.

What is your favourite colour?

Green, but not shiny green; either soft green or dark green.

What is your favourite place?

My bedroom, is like a sanctuary to me.

What is your favourite article of clothing?

A red and black striped polo shirt.

What is your favourite word?

Why do I have to choose a word? A word can be as beautiful as we use it. But I would have to say... either Madrugada, which is a Spanish word defining early morning since makes me think that no matter how dark is the night, we know that the sun will rise the next day and Redemption, knowing that people can touch bottom and redeem themselves if they have the will to do it.

What is your most favourite quality about yourself?

My creativity, I guess... or how I manage to keep myself calm facing bad situations.

If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would it be and why?

I really don't have idea. I guess I am where I want to be... (gosh, how cliched does that sound?)

What inspires you to write?

Stories that I think must be told and a way to express myself. I see the world around me and think how many things in our lives are untold... how little details that are quite interesting could be exploited...

What is your favourite book and why?

I can't have a favorite book; it would be unfair to the other books I have loved through the years. I love Papillion at the same time I love Gulliver's Travels and One Hundred Years of Solitude or A Brave New World. I just can't choose one since one loves books for different motives... would I ask you which is your favorite child?

What is your favourite genre to write in?

Fantasy... the posibility of what you can make seems limitless... is a blank slate where you can make whatever crosses your mind. It can have Tolkien and China Melville sharing the same genre. Tell me where else you could find such contrasting figures writing under the same blanket?

Where do you see yourself as a writer in 3 years?

With my current WIP finished, edited and seeking a publisher.

What language do you prefer to write in and does that impact your potential audience?
I prefer to write in Spanish since is my first language and the one I feel more free and confortable. But it's hard to get an audience... see? I only can name one writer of epic fantasy in Spanish, one writer of urban fantasy and a long list of Magic Realism... the Latin American boom finished almost 30 years ago and now, most people read either books tranlasted from English, Italian or Portuguese or the same big figures from the Latin American boom (García Márquez, Vargas Llosa, Cortázar, etc.) who we must live at their shadow... sometimes I think I would be far more succesful in English than in Spanish...
