Interview with CG Cortes

When did you first start writing?
I wrote a play in 5th grade enrichment class. It was a western comedy. My wonderful teachers tortured my poor class by making them perform it in public.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Mid-life crisis. I've always loved to read and had thought at one time about being a writer. I chose a different career path and when I burnt out on teaching, I started writing. I think the aspect of changing lives is something we have all toyed with, always wondering what it would be like to be someone different.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have tried to get my book published the traditional way, but have had no bites with publishers or agents. I purchase all of my books electronically, so I thought I would give this a shot.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I just like putting my imagination on paper. I always have ideas floating around in my brain, why not put them down in a story. It's relaxing and helps with stress relief, too.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read, do housework, play games on my phone. I do yoga. I also am a substitute rural mail carrier. Oh, and Netflix, let's not forget Netflix.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I keep up with my favorite authors series and just browse suggested books. I pretty much read anything from comedies, mysteries, suspense and the classics.
