Interview with D.M. Beyer

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Coming up with that perfect line where it just flows.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Tired of jumping through all the hoops of traditional publishing and conforming my voice to fit their standards. Indie publishing is one of the last frontiers of writing honestly
What do your fans mean to you?
I don't have any fans, but if I did, they'd be worth more than gold
What are you working on next?
Not sure. Always working on something though. Have about a dozen stories started, but not finished. If people like my stuff then I will write more.
Who are your favorite authors?
Sylvia Plath
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Writing and finishing a good damn story
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Family, nature, sleeping or smoking or cleaning something or other
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was a book about whales. Notebook paper tied with yellow yarn. Never forget it
What is your writing process?
Drugs, insanity, darkness, coffee and lots of cigarettes
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
When I first read The Bell Jar as well as Sylvia's poetry I felt like for the first time I had found someone who thought about the same things the exact same way that I did. I love her. She has inspired me to write no matter how cruel the voices are that day
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on the road with my mother. We never stayed in one place more than a yr. My childhood was filled with temporary moments of stability and long, endless intervals of complete and utter dysfunction. Writing is and has always been my escape. I live inside my head; always have. I suppose my disruptive and lonely childhood inspired me to put my imagination to good use thus this pathetic attempt at getting my stuff out there.....
