Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in North Carolina, and where I grew up was country and farms, I remember when we first started getting public transportation the bus cost me $.25 to ride. Not like it is today, so with not much to do or a way to get around, I fell in love with books.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted my book done my way, without someone chopping it up and turning it into a whole different book
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Just writing in general, I do it for the love not the money. Writing books is something few people get rich from, and I am ok with that. I'm happy to have my books out in the world
