Interview with aTDGNation

When did you first start writing?
I first began writing in 3rd grade. It was then that I wrote my first short-short play. It was 3 pages of scripted dialogue and the biggest accomplishment of my third grade year. :)
What's the story behind your latest book?
I actually have two books arriving on here at the same time, late next month. The first is a YA book based on the story of my son and a medical condition he has. The second is a more extensive novel based on the life, times, and relationship of me and my grandmothers. Both of them are true stories put in novel form.
What motivated you to become an indie author?

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords is the most amazing tool for indie authors such as myself and has alotted me the ability to get my works out to the numerous online outlets for readers all over the internet.

The greatest joy of writing for me is getting into the story. Nothing is more amazing than when you get so involved in the story that once out of it you feel like you just came from a physical location.

My fans mean EVERYTHING to me. In writing any piece I am in constant awareness as to whether or not my fans will be entertained by the story I'm putting forward.
