Interview with Holly Mortimer

What's the story behind your latest book?
I wanted to write a love story about an ordinary girl who is in love with love, but terrified of actually finding love and experiencing it. This ordinary girl, George, meets an extraordinary man, Finn, who shows her how to find love after loss.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I've always wanted to write a book, but on my own terms. Indie publishing allows me the freedom to send the story where I want it to go.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords allows me to distribute my books on multiple platforms all in one transaction.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy is putting all the my lifelong thoughts and dreams onto paper and seeing it become something others enjoy reading.
What do your fans mean to you?
They are the reason I can keep writing. If my work didn't resonate with anyone, it would be a lonely world of writing for me.
What are you working on next?
The next book in my Sisters series, Floating Within.
Who are your favorite authors?
JR Ward, Diana Gabaldon, KM Moning, Kirsten Ashley
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My children and my husband who has to get up so much earlier than I do!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading and carting my kids to their activities.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Hit or miss! I just keep reading as much as I can and sometimes I discover a real gem!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes! It was in high school and it was my version of Cleopatra's love story. It's the reason I am a writer.
