Interview with James E. Potvin

What do you read for pleasure?
I read business and nature related books for pleasure. I also read marketing and social media related books.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I own the Kindle and the Nook. I use the Kindle more. I also use the android phone apps to read anytime on my cell phone.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book is the story around "Autism Triplet Twist." I am the father of triplets and two of the girls have autism. This book is a recap of true parenting stories since the girls were born. I have been told by friends, family and complete strangers that I should write a book, so I did.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
With e-publishing, the publishing world has changed. More e-books are sold than print books. I still offer print books, but it takes less time and effort to publish an e-book. Still, there is the satisfaction of publishing a print book that is not the same as publishing an e-book.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I lead an active life. When I'm not writing I have many hobbies. In the Spring and summer, I canoe, fish, kayak, hike and camp. In the winter, I ski, cross country ski and snowshoe. I also have a dog, two ferrets and a chinchilla for entertainment.
