My book, On Writing and Worldbuilding, has sold over 22,000 copies since May 2019 and has consistently remained in the top 10 books for Science Fiction and Fantasy Literary Criticism, often at #1. I have LLB and a BA with a double major in English and Philosophy, and have grown my business centered around writing and worldbuilding for the last few years.
