Interview with Francis R. Guevara

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Long Beach, CA. Not the prettiest place in the county of Los Angeles, but it has its hidden beauties.

I would have to say my writing was influenced mostly through my experiences, both good and bad. From my youth and to this point in my life, I have gone through countless spirals that bring about an array of emotions and thoughts that can only be described through alternating tales.
When did you first start writing?
I, like most, started writing as a child. Okay, that was a bit naive for a response.

I truly started writing around the age of twelves. It always started out as a poem, which transpired into a song and at times even a short story, which in itself grew in length as well.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Brilliant as the many published books are, I find that Indie Authors have more of a voice, silent yet an echo.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy in writing would be that of the boundless lengths of imagination.
What do your fans mean to you?
I care deeply for my readers. I only hope to inspire their talents and dreams.
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on a series of short stories, a novella and a collection of poems and songs.
Who are your favorite authors?
With such a vast equation of authors in the world, it is hard to sum it down to just a few. I would simply have to say that Indie Authors are by far my favorite authors.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My niece.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time playing on game consoles.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Suggestions by friends.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever truly wrote was a short horror with four alternative endings. Shadows within the Darkness, I believe was the name.
