Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I've been writing for as long as I can remember. When I was a child I would write short stories and plays for my friends to act out. I wrote my first book, Take Over, when I was nine. It was a story about my friends and I fighting off aliens that had invaded our neighborhood. The second book in The Ravening Series is named after it.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I had tried the traditional publishing route of querying agents for years with no luck. I was beginning to grow disheartened when I finally decided to listen to my husband. He had been urging me for a couple of years to try self publishing. I'm grateful and happy everyday that I took his advice.
