Interview with Garnet D Toritto

What's the story behind your latest book?
This book was about connecting with my daughter. It was time spent together to develop and problem solve for the different ideas and thoughts on the story.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I've always wanted to write a book but the thought of writing something that no one would ever get to read was demotivating. So being able to publish independently was extremely appealing. Having the freedom to craft the story how wanted was very powerful and we loved the idea that we got to oversee all the different aspects of the publication process.
Who are your favorite authors?
JK Rowling's Harry Potter books have had a big influence on my daughter and me. She is one of our absolute favorites. From an adult perspective I also enjoy Evangeline Anderson, she has published a number of her books through Smashwords which is what inspired me to do the same.
What are you working on next?
Right now we are working on Book 2 of Marigold's story. Everyone will learn more about the twins and Marigold will meet her BFF. We are having lots of lively discussions on it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Working too many hours at my day job and trying to spend as much quality time with my daughter as I can.
