Smashwords Interview

Please introduce yourself, who are you and what do you do?
Hi, all. I’m Justin Swapp, I’m a lot of things. Professionally I manage multiple sales programs with lots of great employees across the United States. When I’m not doing that, I’m a writer, amongst other things. I’ve been published in several anthologies, and have just completed my debut novel, The Magic Shop.
What first inspired you to start writing?
I’ve always enjoyed writing. If I had to pin it down to one thing, it would probably be my mother. In our younger years, she was the type that would give us a treat if we memorized a poem and things like that. She always enjoyed good books, and I think she instilled that in us. My grandmother (mother’s mom) had also done some writing. So, that probably influenced me as well.
