Interview with Danielle Urban

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing back in the sixth grade. Every day, I came to class I showed my best friend a new poem that I wrote. And she always asked how do you do that?
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book, is about three high schoolers, two being best friends and the third an enemy. They all go through a lot of drama, pain, and have to find the courage to continue on their journey even through all the emotions they are experiencing as young adults. That can be the toughest journey of them all. And these three will find out what it's like and how to grow from it.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love reading and writing. Books are my best friend. I live too far to be around those my age and so, I have always burried my head deep into a good novel. I wanted to be able to write a book that will allure and hook others into my new worlds and take them on new paths and adventures.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has contributed to my success by making my eBooks easier to publish worldwide and distributed all over. And that helps readers from all over to read my books, thus contributing to my success as a writer.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writig is knowing that your characters have changed from where they first started and have grown from their original perspective on life itself.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean the world to me. I couldn't be an author nor where I am today without any one of them.
What are you working on next?

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
What inpires me to get out of bed each day is the task of helping my grandparents out, working with authors on writing book reviews, articles, and working on getting more of my projects completed. That and having to complete my college courses online.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing, I am either reading or watching TV with my family.
