Interview with R Reardon

What motivated you to become an indie author?
When I had began this journey, I was writing for my own interest. I enjoyed putting pen to paper and letting it flow. It was only after I had shown a couple close friends and authors that I realized that I may have had something here. They enjoyed my work so much, they went on to recommend my stories to their friends and it trickled from there. I am hoping to open up many avenues, and venture into the largely undiscovered world of erotic fiction and the like. :)
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My beautiful daughter inspires me to get of bed.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I would probably be caught baking something or playing an instrument. :)
When did you first start writing?
I can remember writing poetry as early as 7 and 8 years old. As time went on I came to realize that I needed depth, feeling and substance in my writings. So, realistically I was probably 11 or 12 when I actually wrote something that I could be semi-proud of.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Unfortunately, no I don`t. If anything, it was probably a poem.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small community in eastern Canada, however recent economical developments have made it unrecognizable to me. I would never want to the live there again. I have fond memories of my childhood in my home town, but things just aren`t the same anymore.
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean everything. I was writing for myself for a long time, and since publishing some of my work and getting the reception that I have gotten thus far - I would never go back. Fans ARE everything.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Mostly Amazon and Kindle.
Describe your desk
My kitchen table. It`s... uhh... a rectangle, four sturdy legs - of equal length - and yeah... A pretty standard kitchen table. Ha!
What do you read for pleasure?
Pretty well what I write. Not me perse, but erotica in general. :)
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is a sequel to the popular first volume of my erotic works, untitled right now. Please see my bookshelf to see what I currently have available. (More added shortly)
