My desk contains my laptop, photos of my husband and children, a stapler and pens! My favorite place to write however, is my screened-in back porch, or my couch where I can view my screened-in back porch. :)
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small county, where everybody knows everybody! I have gotten a lot of life lessons here, and that is reflected in my writing.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing for "others" back in 2010. A stage play!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My writing is therapeutic for me, and I want that to be relayed to others. I need the freedom of expression.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has given me the opportunity to publish my very, first book!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me, is knowing that my transparency has helped someone in some way.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything! They encourage me, as I hope I do them.
What are you working on next?
Coming up next for me is both challenging and exciting and scary all wrapped into one. It's a memoir about my Anxiety & Depression. I'm overcoming it daily, but it still exists. I must admit that writing the book, drudges up some of the painful memories of past episodes, but by God, I'm still here!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My husband, children and family inspire me to get out of bed each day! I'm teary-eyed as I type, because my depression hinders that for me so much.
