Interview with BenjaminMcqueen

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I prefer the kindle but when I'm on the move I always read on my phone.
Describe your desk
I'm ashamed to say it's very untidy. I'm always digging out tiny bits of paper which I've scribbled something down on and leave them all over my desk. I find it easy to write away from my desk, it's a little to much pressure to actually sit down and think "right I'm going to write".
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Sussex England. I'm not sure it's had any direct influence to be honest only to go as far as it helps me to drift away into a much more pleasant fantasy world.
When did you first start writing?
I've always written. As a child I would spend hours creating little worlds of secret club houses and silly gangs, however I struggled a lot with literacy at that age and many of my attempts were unreadable to anybody else.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Transports of Delight is a collection of short erotic stories that I've been writing and publishing on my blog over the past year. They are all stories of simple people and the truth behind their normal exterior. I think I want to show that everybody is different and unique and we all have very complex sides.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I like the freedom and reach it affords you. Its also the best way to get feed back and to interact with the people who read your stories.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I'll tell you in a few months.....hopefully.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Its being able to unload all the thoughts, feelings and ideas that are floating about untamed inside me.
What are you working on next?
Alice is a story I've been working on for a while. It's going to be my first full length piece and I really hope its going to find a home in a lot of readers. You can check out a free extract on my blog

A mystery man has chosen Alice but who is he??
