I read anything I can. I search for book at my local library different ways each time. Sometimes I will choose by color, sometimes size. Some days I will just go by the cover. I love to read and do not have a favorite author, so that is the best way for me to find wonderful, new books.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Well....I know I am publishing in an electronic environment, but I love a book. The smell of the paper, the feel of flipping the pages. Not worrying about breaking it when I drop it. My daughter has a nook, but I can tell she likes books also, because it's been sitting on my desk for a month now.
Describe your desk
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Alsip IL. I do not think it influenced me at all, at least I don't know how it did. I think just reading so many wonderful stories made me wish I could do the same.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love to read, but books can be very expensive. Publishing online gives everyone an opportunity to find books they can afford.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Coming up with a story and being able to change what happens. In other books I have no control how something will happen. In my books I do.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I prefer to spend it with my family.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Browsing the ebook sites.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was a story about a dragon that I wrote when I was 12.
