Interview with Alan E. Boyer

How do you approach cover design?
I would like to have something created that quickly coveys the books general content.
What do you read for pleasure?
Mystery, science fiction, and also any financial or business related non-text books that appeal.
Describe your desk
Organized. So much so that if my wife calls asn asks where something is I can tell her what drawer and about where in that drawer. Overboard ? Maybe.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Attleboro, MA. Actually it is more when I left that I became more influenced. I believe that living in MA., VA.,OH, IL, FL, KS, and SC influenced me greatly. It was a new adventure every time we moved.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is on Insurance Basics. With all the publicity about Health Insurance, it just made sense to provide people some straight forward advice about saving money on insurance.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Provided me the structure and guidance to create, promote, and market my work.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Believing that I can save people time, money, and hassle. I have many plenty of mistakes and hopefully learned from them. My desire is to help others to not make those same mistakes.
What is your writing process?
I try to write based on my past experiences which I have direct knowledge of the events and outcomes.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm an avid golfer and my wife enjoys it too. We actually can play together without arguing, that's pretty good.
Starting January 2014, I have accepted a position with a local financial services company. Looking forward to the new challenge.
