Andy Peloquin–a third culture kid to the core–has loved to read since before he could remember. Sherlock Holmes, the Phantom of the Opera, and Father Brown are just a few of the books that ensnared his imagination as a child.
When he discovered science fiction and fantasy through the pages of writers like Edgar Rice Burroughs, J.R.R Tolkien, and Orson Scott Card, he was immediately hooked and hasn’t looked back since.
Reading—and now writing—is his favorite escape, and it provides him an outlet for his innate creativity. He is an artist; words are his palette.
His website (http://www.andypeloquin.com) is a second home for him, a place where he can post his thoughts and feelings–along with reviews of books he finds laying around the internet.
What about the person behind the author?
Here’s a few things to know about me:
Quite an odd bird, right?
A few more things you might not have known about me:
All of these things combined have made me an outsider among the people around me. I’ve always been an outcast, a loner, but I feel that has actually helped to make me a better writer.
You see, I’ve struggled to understand people’s thoughts, feelings, and emotions my whole life. In my writing, I’ve made it a point to learn as much as I can about “normal” emotions and reactions. But I’ve come to realize that there is no such thing as normal. Everyone is trying to cope with their own range of feelings, and it’s that “range” that makes us so unique. When I write, I try to give each character their scope of emotions, and that makes the characters individuals that are realistic and enjoyable.
