Interview with Amazonian Femina

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born and raised in Bronx, NY. Where I was born did not influence my writing what influenced my writing was my love of books and reading. Once I discovered books my life changed from that point on.
When did you first start writing?
When I was younger I would write out everything, just because I loved the way having a pen in my hand made me feel. Years later I referred to myself as an unnecessary writer. I would write just because and not because I really had to. To answer your question i first started writing when I first picked up a pen to write, age 5.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am a Professional Dominatrix in NYC. I always play out little story lines in my head. I love role play scenarios with my clients. Role-playing has caused me to broaden my horizons and believe that since I am good at putting together a script in my head then I should definitely write a book about all the scenarios that play out in my head both in a servitude session as well as out.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
What motivated me to become an Indie author is just being able to say I published my first book on my own without prior knowledge of publishing. For me it is an accomplishment that I got it done without the backing of a publishing company. Although my long term goal in writing is to catch the attention of a publishing company.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I am still learning as I go along. I have no prior knowledge of using smash words so I am going through the process step by step. While I am currently not a known author as yet. Smash words is helping me as an Indie author get my name out there to those I would not know how to reach otherwise.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy of writing is the escape. I am in another world when i am writing a world where I fit in, where I belong, where there are no worries in life. It is just my characters and myself role playing out scenarios until we find a scenario that will capture the attention of those who choose to read my books.
What do your fans mean to you?
Those who have purchased my books mean more to me then I could have ever imagined. I am new at this and my sales have been mediocre but I am very grateful to the person who takes time out to just read the description of what the book is about.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a Trilogy. I have already started writing it and have completed a whole book which I plan to release on my birthday September 28th. It is a BDSM love story and I am hoping that it will be a hit among readers interested in the, Art of Domination.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors are; Jasinda Wilder, EL James, Alice Munro, Paulo Coelho, Sylvia Day....the list goes on.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
What inspires me to get out of bed each day is having a purpose. Some days I find it hard to get out of bed and when that happens I just remember that I have a purpose.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing I spend my time looking for the next best thing.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Since technology has advanced more than I could have ever imagined I have the world of reading at my fingertips. Many of the books I read is strictly from word of mouth but once I read a book I am constantly having books recommended to me and that is how I discover new books.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. The first story I ever wrote was about myself and my family. I changed up the characters and pretended that my life belonged to someone else.
What is your writing process?
My writing process is sit down and write. I cannot have the television playing but I do listen to classical music while I am penning my next creation.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes I read Hop on Pop. I read it every day and even as an adult I find myself reading it. The impact it had on me was that I could write such a book and make it just as good as Dr. Seuss's creation.
How do you approach cover design?
I had no clue about cover design but Thank God for friends who made designing covers their interest.
What do you read for pleasure?
For pleasure I find myself reading love stories. It puts things into perspective concerning dating and falling in love.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle downloaded to my smart phone is my e-reading device of choice.
