Interview with Justin P Lambert

When did you first start writing?
I've been writing in one form or another since I was a little kid. I remember being absolutely in love with those sheets of paper that had a large blank space at the top for a picture and several blue solid and broken lines at the bottom for the story that went with the picture. I blasted through those things like nobody's business.

In High School I had two very supportive English teachers that encouraged me to pursue my talent and that's when I first started actually taking it seriously. Now, I am a professional freelance writer supporting my family with my words and working toward adding more poetry and fiction to my mix as well.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love the freedom that comes with publishing independently and the direct connection I can have with my readers as a result. I'm not opposed to mainstream publishing in the least, but the direct connection and instant gratification of indie publishing is just so much more fun.
