Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing when I was around fourteen, but I never got past the few few paragraphs. I always wanted to write, but never really thought that I could do it. Over the years I made several attempts to write, but they were all horrible failures.

It wasn't until after I threw my back out and I realized just how bad my situation was that I decided to give it a try. I'd been reading heavily at that point and there were a lot of books that I really enjoyed, but there were also books that I didn't like. It was because of the books that I didn't enjoy that I decided to give writing a chance. I'd hoped that I could write a more enjoyable story.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is actually the first book that I ever wrote. It was my first attempt at writing. I wrote day and night for a few weeks straight and when the book was done I thought it was the best book ever written. I set it aside, preparing myself for that day that book would become world famous.

I started to research publishing and realized that I should probably edit the book to make sure that it was absolutely perfect. I read through it and not even halfway through I realized just how horrible the book was. It was awful, really awful. I deleted the entire book, but saved the characters because they'd meant a great deal to me.

Over the years I would work on the book here and there. This past year I decided that I owed it to the characters to finish the book. The book didn't turn out as I expected, but I really enjoyed the process and loved the story.
