Interview with Dana Serino

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes! The first story I ever wrote was a short children's story about a loveable dog named Amy. I was probably only 10 or 11 at the time.
When did you first start writing?
I have been writing my entire life! Stories when I was young, business writing when I was in the legal field, and now health and fitness writing along with a fiction novel I am working on.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book, "Lose 20 Pounds in 2 Weeks, and Keep It Off" was based on years of studying diets and nutrition. As a fitness enthusiast, I know how important it is to fuel your body with the food it needs in order to perform at its best. I also know how important it is to kickstart your metabolism in order to lose weight. Eating the correct food combined with exercise is key to losing weight and keeping it off. It is also key to optimizing your health. At 48, I am in better shape now than I was when I was in my 20's. I wanted to share my secrets with the world.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to help people who have struggled with their weight. I know it isn't easy, but once you know how to eat and live healthy, it becomes a lifestyle change.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has enabled me to introduce my book to the world. I never would have had this kind of exposure without it!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy of writing is helping people and putting smiles on their faces! If I can inspire just one person to change their life for the better, it makes it all worth while.
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on a fiction novel which I hope to have completed within the next six months.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing, working out, or running, I love to spend time with my family!!
