Interview with Timothy Ellis

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I was converted to Kindle and ibooks in 2013, more or less by accident, and the desire to carry too many thick books on a plane, and no space or weight allowance for them. It proved so successful for reading, I began experimenting with Indie publishing in 2014. Never looked back.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Telling a rollicking good yarn which people tell me they cant get enough of.
What do your fans mean to you?
A great deal. Knowing there are people out there who get a great deal out of my books in many different ways, allows me to earn a living knowing I'm entertaining and helping people.
What are you working on next?
The spin off series A.I. Destiny series. Also working on a number of other projects including a direct sequel to The Hunter Legacy.
Who are your favorite authors?
I read widely in sci-fi and fantasy, but a few authors make me stop each time a book of theirs comes out.
Nathan Lowell, Glynn Stewart, LE Modesitt Jr., Annie Bellet, Ilona Andrews.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
My first full story was Hero at Large.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read what I write. Space Opera, Science Fiction, Fantasy.
Occasionally also Detective and Adventure.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Ipad Mini with the Kindle app, although I also sometimes use the Ibooks app.
Describe your desk
Two corner workstations forming a U shape. 4 different sized monitors, with one of them being a large screen tv.
When did you first start writing?
I began writing game guides in 2004, a Feng Shui book in 2006, and a series of spiritual books ever since.
I started writing fiction in 2014, with my first novel released in 2015.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read a lot.
I watch DVD's with every meal.

At times I binge read, or binge watch.

Each afternoon, I feed the local wild Swans, Ducks, and water birds.
