Interview with Pearl Kelly

What motivated you to become an indie author?
My daughter. I am on the tail-end of another divorce and needed to be able to provide for her. I needed a job that would work with my disability. I had always loved words and writing, so I put my talents to work making a future for her.
What is your writing process?
I do a brainstorm and write everything about the story I want to tell, then I fill in with the information needed to help the story make sense to others.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I remember the general topic. It was classic romance. Boy meets girl, girl meets boy. Things happen, they marry. Ta-da happily ever after.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
1. My daughter and step-kids
2. Working on my writing and creating a great future for my children.
3. Beating the arthritis demons that would love to see me give in to the pain and aggravation of having chronic diseases.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I hope my readers get as much pleasure out of reading my books as I do writing them.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a longer story, it might turn into a novella. But it will be in the same genre. I have some strange knack for writing erotica.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am usually researching or playing computer games. I chat with kinksters in an effort to learn more about my subject.
When did you first start writing?
I have always written poetry. My poems probably will makes themselves known in the near future. I have only recently started writing short stories.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
If it wasn't for Smashwords, there would be no writing career. I sold my first ebook at Smashwords storefront. I was very moved and amazed to have even done that. Smashwords makes it so easy to self-publish. I think God sent Smashwords my way to help me move forward.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The book I am working on is a semi-biography. Some of the situations or even the lessons, the pieces of growth and inspirational learning, those are personal to me. I don't know how much of me will be in Katie, but it will be fun to see.
How do you approach cover design?
I want my cover to allude to the story. It might be something only i catch onto, but there is usually something behind the cover.
