Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest eBook Tutor in a Box would fall under the quote necessity is the mother of invention. You see my children all attend a virtual charter school. When my first child started I asked all the teachers if they could help me help my children by providing online resources my kids could use. The response I received was rather shocking. Out of the six teachers I asked I was emailed only 3 links to educational websites. I thought to myself these are teachers at an online school and this is the best they can do. So I started to keep a list of websites that my kids used often or that I used to help them and just kept adding to it. I also noticed that many parents were lost when it came to where to go on the internet to get good educational information. I observed this one day as I sat at my local It’s a Grind and watched 7 parents in a group. All of them with computers trying their best to solve some Algebra II problems so they could then break those problems down and teach them to their children. They all looked frustrated and confused and a bit angry. So I thought why not take this list of mine that have compiled for the last six years and turn it into a book so others could benefit as much as I did. That is exactly what I did. That is the quick story of how Tutor in a Box come to being.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is the journey. Other writers know what I mean. You start with an idea and you watch it grow and change along the way. Just like a Bonsai tree grow and takes shape. As the author you prune off what is not needed and guide this idea till it takes its final shape as a book. I also get buzz when someone says my writing was able to help them in some way.
