Interview with R.L. Nicholson

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Houston and crammed four years of college into seven at the University of Texas in Austin. I've lived on the beach in California and I suppose my exposure to both worlds, (Texans do consider the 'left coast' to be another world) has influenced the way I write as well as the way I live.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Answering this question could be hazardous to my health
What motivated you to become an indie author?
This was a story that I needed to tell. The problem is: the eternal question of "Why do good girls go for bad boys?" may or may not have been answered.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
They have allowed me to get my work out. And believe me this was work. So to quote from the book,I hope that the public will understand a "fair days pay for a fair days work"
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Finishing it was a happy day. But I have to be honest, I am already missing the characters that I had a relationship with for a year and a half.
What do your fans mean to you?
Reinforcement that I didn't delude myself into believing that I could tell a story.
What are you working on next?
Some of the character's in Good Girl Bad Boys have their own stories to tell.
Who are your favorite authors?
Nelson Demille is at the top of my list. I just hope he won't think that John Corey morphed into Tyler Garrett.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The fact that "tomorrow is promised to no one"
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm lucky that everyday is a new day and I am just along for the ride. In other words, whatever I feel like doing. Yea right, I chase the almighty dollar right along with a vast majority of the world
