Interview with Samantha Fair

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town, in the heart of apple country. When I started writing, there wasn't anything to do most nights until there was a football game or everyone was down at the bowling alley. Writing was an escape and it gave me an opportunity to use my imagination.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing at age 15 as a means to pass time between classes. It took me until after college to finish my first book.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind Love or Lust is a personal one. The people I used are real and the basis of the story is real. The scenarios are different, the product of an overactive imagination but it gave me a way to release some of the feelings I had been hiding. You will see it in the book where Kate has the high and lows of marriage and dealing with her extra relationships.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I like to play by my own rules. It gives me a chance to be creative and create my own deadlines for stories. I can take as little or as much time as I need to finish a project. Plus it saves a lot of money.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I am just starting out so we'll see how it goes. I only have my book available on one website but I'm looking to expand to other areas.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It's an escape from reality. I have an over-active imagination and the littlest thing can spark inspiration. I like living out fantasies that I know can't happen in real life.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean the world to me. I have a few loyal followers that have been with me since the beginning on my writing. They are looking forward to my projects and provide the necessary feedback to move toward my goals.
What are you working on next?
I'm re-writing my first book from high school, Deceived, which is due to release in December on my birthday. I have 2 more projects outlined that are looking at 2020 releases.
Who are your favorite authors?
Janet Evanovich, Sophie Kinsella and Emily Giffin
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My kids and the fact I get to stay home with them and watch them grow up. That's my main reasoning for writing and trying to make a living from it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm a realtor so if I'm not writing, I'm prospecting new clients and sending out information. I'm a Jill of all trades so my hands are dipped into a little bit of everything.
