Interview with Andre' Mwansa

What motivated you to start writing?
I started writing because I can and not because of talent or whatsoever. And because I've always wanted to be a part of something.
How do you plan your stories?
The truth is, it all happens differently. Sometimes I'll get bored, get my laptop, and tell myself that I'm going to write a story. Then I pick up a genre and Title, then start typing anything that pops into my mind. Or sometimes I'll be in the bathroom when an idea pops up, and I can only curse finding myself with no note book.
Sometimes I'll be at work when an idea pops up. I usually call on any of my co-workers, tell them the idea and then tell them to hold it for me till knock off time.
Do you remember the first book you wrote?
Oh, yeah it was a small one, eight pages or so(see, it doesn't even fit to be called a book, well most of my stories don't). I remember it was when I got a reject in the school of Natural Sciences At UNZA. But just when I was about to give up, I wrote myself 'Six Important Things That Make Life Worth Living' only the rejection left me stingy that I didn't want to share. And yes, I still don't want to share it.
Do you remember the first novel you read?
Well, not exactly the Title, but I do remember that it was a romantic comedy I got from my friend Marcus back in high school.
what is the best novel you ever read?
I wouldn't say best, because that will force me to start updating this interview every now and then. But I do have a favourite author, Stephen King.
What do fans mean to you?
Oh, they mean a lot, especially when it gets hotter.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, gossiping, sexting and playing video games.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Mostly it is my phone, just not to look at the computer for a long time.
Any authors you might say are good here at smashwords?
Yeah.....that would be me....hahaha!!! Just kidding.

So far I've got James Hold, Steve Howrie, Mark Dryden to name but a few.

I believe there are a lot of talented authors here at smashwords that I just haven't yet come across.
