When did you first start writing?
The first piece I ever wrote was when I was thirteen. It was an erotica story about my neighbor at the time. However, I was scared my parent's would find and destroyed the evidence. In 2012, I picked up the pen again and started writing stories as a fan fiction writer. I've written 21 romances, erotica, and other stories since then.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I've always had a strong love of classic music. One day while riding down the road, the song, came on, and almost immediately I knew I had to write based off my lyric in that song.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Money ... okay, so it wasn't really money, maybe I should say the lack thereof. Indie authors don't have to wait for a big publishing house to find them. They can do it on their own, which is where the money comes in. I knew the odds of being noticed were slim and worked for two years, learning and working to become better. If I was going to become an author; I knew I had to do it on my own.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I don't know yet ... just published.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing relieves stress for me and I can get the stories that plague my brain out. I've always enjoyed writing.
What do your fans mean to you?
EVERYTHING ... they have built me up to this point. And, keep on encouraging me.
