About the author***
The Raven’s Doctor likens himself to a weaver; his computer is the loom, and the words are the threads. Every day, without exception, the Doctor weaves his tale throughout. Additionally, he will examine his work closely to make sure there are no visible nicks or crevices. He aims to make the reader feel as though they are a fly on the wall witnessing the action take place in real time. What more could The Raven’s Doctor want for? He will also weave his book such that it may continue beyond his death for future generations.
BREW Question: Did you love reading books when you were little? Why or why not?

BREW Question: At what age did you start reading books? What were your best memories of that time?

BREW Question: What was the first book you loved reading? Why?
Author’s Response: The unofficial Naruto guidebook was my first favourite book. I cherished reading it aloud to people and pointing out all the errors and erroneous assumptions it contained.

Author’s Response: Two sparks of inspiration lit my fire. My first inspiration came when I was in middle school and wrote a fantasy short story that both professors and students adored.

While other students were intimidated by what I wrote, she was the only one who genuinely appreciated it, which inspired me to keep writing.

One thought on “Meet our Author: The Raven’s Doctor”
I love the weaver metaphor. And I had never met an artist who was good at math. Well, da Vinci, of course, but a living one. I love manga as a visual art form, so I wonder how this genre would influence literature. Fascinating!
