Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I have been writing in some form all my life, whether it was poetry, novellas, or class papers. I have a graduate degree, nevertheless, it did not prepare me for writing fiction and especially romantic fiction. I became a romance writer in 2005. I wrote to relieve tension from work and for enjoyment.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
After writing my first novel, "Obsession: Warm Bodies, Cold Hearts, I sent it out with all the required paper work (Synopsis etc...) An obscure publisher wanted to publish the book. I was very eager and didn't do my research. I learned important lessons concerning the publishing industry. Finally I joined Romance Writers of America and read the needed information and learned about Smashwords and Amazon.
