Interview with Jonathan M. Leighton, Jr

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I enjoy spending my time with my kids more than anything.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I have a great habit of reading books suggested by anyone and everyone. I feel as though it gives me a wider selection of interesting things to read.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I wrote was 10 pages long and was called "Black Roses". I was 10 and I used a manual typewriter to compose it.
What is your writing process?
write when inspired, even if it means you have to pull off the road. :)
When did you first start writing?
I was 10.
What are you working on next?
A sequel to The Reign of Feralon.
Who are your favorite authors?
Anne Rice, Kristan Britain, Stephanie Meyers, and Dan Brown
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My children. They are pretty difficult to ignore. :)
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to write a novel for about 10 years before starting my first. When I realized I had so much content and finally enough patience I began writing. Four years later I arrived on Smashwords.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to put into words the movie playing in my mind.
