Interview with C M Christians

When did you first start writing?
I started writing short stories when I was ten years old. I dabbled at poetry in my teenage years, but only started writing seriously in my twenties.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I think it was more an urge, than a motivation! So many stories, characters and dialogue...what to do with them but write their stories...
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
By providing me with the platform to publish my books.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The escape into a dream world where anything is truly possible.
Who are your favorite authors?
Lisa Kleypas, Johanna Lindsey, Judith McNaught, Jane Austen
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The gift of life by being blessed with another day with my family.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, tasting wine, cooking and spending time with family and friends.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes! The story was about two teenage girls in a hostel and their adventures with life and love.
What is your writing process?
I start with a short synopsis, followed by various scenes which I later put together in a rough draft of the novel. I then write the connecting scenes in a second draft, followed by a final draft for editing.
What do you read for pleasure?
Contemporary and historical romances, preferably with some humor.
Describe your desk
E-reader, tablet, mobile phone, laptop, pens and paper, coffee cup.
