Interview with Forester de Santos

What do you read for pleasure?
The Bible, Sherlock Holmes, Shakespeare
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Sony
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The belief that I can be reborn into life!
Describe your desk
Made out of glass with bamboo support. My desk faces the woods or the back yard where I live.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the South Bronx, in New York City. I practiced my English skills by writing verses or poems and even though they were pretty good, according to my English teachers, I never thought of publishing or even being a writer. But that was then. I realized that I have a lot to teach and thus that is the reason that I now write.
When did you first start writing?
As a child, about six or seven years old. I practiced my English by writing my feelings in English verses.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I now a lot of stuff, from science, history and even religion, stuff that not everybody knows and this motivated me to put some of that stuff in the latest book.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Mainly because it was free! Imagine being able to put one's thoughts as one really wants all round the world and perhaps get paid too! But I just do not writing anything. In fact, I stopped writing fiction and decided to write non-fiction, what I call inspiration or motivational.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It has allowed to be motivated to write because it costs me nothing! Other places charge for your writing and not makes no sense, more like no cent!
What is your writing process?
Sit and write! But if nothing comes to mind, then read or glance through newspapers or magazines to get ideas and ideas one will found!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading the Bible, listening to classical music, walking early in the morning to keep fit and to get ideas going in my head. I also enjoy a good movie a few days a week to relax my mind.
