Interview with Stephen G.D Jackley

When did you first start writing?
Around the age of 8
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is about a couple who enter crime as part of a dream, but end up falling into a nightmare - it's a moral lesson, really, as well as a thriller, and I have based it upon my own experience.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
To showcase my work and see how people regard it.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
That is yet to be decided.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Conveying insights into the world - becoming engrossed in a story as I write it, or rather as it writes through me.
What do your fans mean to you?
... fans?
What are you working on next?
The Pyramid Runner.
The Aurora.
The Probe.

And, of course, 'One Life' - the story of that will answer all those queries about how my life went awry.
Who are your favorite authors?
Terry Brooks, Dean Koontz, Tolkien, King, Dickens... need I go on?
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The thought of food.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
