Interview with Denise Salmon

What's the story behind your latest book?
I wrote my latest book as I have seen so many broken lives and families. And I believe a book about love will make a huge difference to families all over the world. As I believe there are a lot of people who use the word 'love' without stopping to think about the true meaning ,and then they end up so confused and so many lives get messed up in the end.
Personally my life has been so different since I discovered the true meaning of the word 'love'. I am less stressed and confused. I found I made better choices in life after I learned more about love.
So I decided that I would share what I've learned when I wrote this book
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans keep me going. When things are not great with me and my fans tell me how much they enjoy reading my poems because they think I am so talented , I feel as if I can keep going. Without fans I would not be writing.

Let me use this opportunity to thank my fans for being there for me.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I wrote was published in a magazine and my photo was placed on the cover, it was about my survival after my accident. And I have kept on writing ever since ,because I really enjoy writing.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Attending the book fair
When did you first start writing?
I started writing 12 years ago
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has helped me to show my work to readers all over the world, as I can give samples to people I meet on the internet..
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
As a writer I hoped I would be able to use my work to change lives, so they can be better. And I have seen some encouraging statements being made about my work so far and I'm happy.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I think life is very colorful and interesting and there are so many new things for me to write about everyday. I wake up each day expecting to have a great day and I keep on writing about my discoveries all the time.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on the beautiful island, Jamaica. My writing is influenced by all the beauty I see everyday and the warm friendly smiles of the people. I'm inspired by the survival skills of Jamaicans. As everyday there is always something interesting and exciting happening here. As Jamaicans find new ways to overcome their problems and replace their burdens with light hearted talk.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing I spend my time collecting more interesting information on the internet about different food, interesting facts and places. So my writing can be even more interesting.
