Interview with Roxie Ryder

What do you read for pleasure?
I read romance, obviously. But I'm also a really big fantasy geek. I love anything with dragons, elves, and magic
What is your e-reading device of choice?
E-reading. my phone. I can have 100 different apps, the internet, there's no limit.
Describe your desk
My desk is a mixture of candles, stacks of paper, and the occasional cat.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
California. Which is why you will find many of my books find their way to the ocean at any given point. Nothing beats sunshine and surf
When did you first start writing?
I started writing over 10 years ago, with an intent to publish. Writing the heavier stuff- last year.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. These are the people that give me purpose, they are the people who can understand my mind and respect my craft. I love them. I want to always give them more and provide them with the entertainment of a great read. I wouldn't be me without them. *Much Love*
Who are your favorite authors?
Easy - Terry Goodkind, Karen Moning, Kresley Cole, Connie Mason, and M.A.Dawn
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Traditional publishing is for the fishes (my opinion). Why give someone else over half of your income. Indie gives me the freedom to be and express myself without restrictions of trying to please an agent, publishing house, or brick and mortar.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy that comes from writing is when I get to see how people react to what I've written; as an author there is always that nagging doubt that I've swam into territory I have no business in. So knowing people love my work is worth more to me than any amount of money.
What are you working on next?
My focus this year is all about short, hot, erotica. I'm trying to keep each story under 30k, or around there. Then who knows- I might just expand those into full-length novels. Sky's the Limit!
