Interview with Ryin Kelsin

What motivated you to become an indie author?
To me it's not about the gratification or the money. I don't write because I want to be famous. I write for the same reason I breathe because if I didn't I would die. I want nothing more than to inspire someone or just make them feel less alone. If my writing impacts one person than I'm happy.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It's an escape. I have no control over others or the outside world. I am in complete control of my characters and what decisions they make. It's a way to release all of my emotions and my way of comprehending things I don't understand. It gives me a reason to research things I want to know more about.
What is your writing process?
I have an interesting process. I decide what I want to write about and then spend hours researching the topic. After I feel I have all the information I need, I break down ever aspect of my characters. I've never been on to write in order. I skip all over the place. I can't write a story from start to finish. I usually start from the middle and work my way out. The beginning is typically the last thing I write.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small country town and I didn't quite fit in there. I used writing as an escape. I enjoyed having a world that I was in complete and total control of. It helped me feel less alone.
What's the story behind your latest book?
What fueled the idea for my latest writing project was a simple crush on one of my coworkers. We have a very strange relationship and writing my novel was my way of coping with the situation.
When did you first start writing?
I'm not sure when I first started. I just know that one day I did and I never stopped. Although my mom told me as a child i was constantly coming up with stories and sharing them with her and my siblings.
