Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing my first real work of fiction that I had hopes of getting published around my freshmen year of high school. I never kept track of the exact date, but it would have been around 1999 or so. However I only started self publishing January of 2012.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The indie marketplace suits my needs in terms of down time. I write short fiction and tend to push out a new title each month. Sometimes, more. Therefore, I value the option of self publishing because releases of my titles can keep up with my own writing habits. Apart from that, being an indie author allows me to keep creative control. However, I have realized that isn't so much of a good thing than when I started self publishing. Writing for an audience means making changes I don't necessarily like.
