Interview with Billy Wong by Aoife Marie Sheridan  


Question: What have you published recently?

My most recently published novel is Iron Champion, the fifth in my Legend of the Iron Flower series about a female epic warrior in the vein of Achilles or Beowulf.

Question: How, and when, did you decide to become a writer?

I became a writer after high school because I thought there weren't enough fantasy books with non-magically powered female warriors who are physical powerhouses and strong and durable even relative to most males. So because that's what I like, even though some might say it's unrealistic, I decided to write my own books about those types.

Question: Where can we find your published writing?

My published writing can be found as ebooks on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, iTunes, and Sony, and can also be ordered in paperback form from Amazon or Createspace.

Question: What is a typical day like for you as a writer?

It's hard to say since it varies a lot, but I generally try to get at least a few pages written or edited in the evening, and sometimes also in the afternoon/morning.

Question: What are your favorite characters that you have created? Tell us about them

My favorite creation would be Rose, the main character of my Legend of the Iron Flower series. She's a 6' 240+ pound, scar-covered, freakishly strong and resilient warrior who fights armies and giant monsters and is a total badass... but a gentle soul at heart. :)

Question: do you find you “mentally edit” other writers’ works as you read them? Does doing this help you or bother you?

I generally don't, I might notice many uses of 'was' or similar passive verbs but even with regard to that I usually stop noticing it after a few pages.

Question: What music do you listen to, while writing?

I don't listen to music while writing.

Question: What do you eat while writing?

Some of my actual meals, especially dinner, and fruit, ice cream, or candy for evening snacks.

What is your favourite movie of all time? Conan the Barbarian

What do you like to do for fun or just to relax? Play video games, surf the internet and watch low budget horror movies
