Interview with Laura Kehoe

What is your writing process?
I'm definitely more of what you would call a "pantser". I tend to start with a general idea for a plot and then let the story grow from there.
When did you first start writing?
I've been writing stories ever since I learned how to form coherent sentences. The first book I can remember writing was a space adventure, starring my three favorite stuffed animals. Which happened to be two aliens and a big gorilla.
What do you read for pleasure?
So many things. I'm sure it doesn't come as a surprise that books are a huge passion of mine. They inspire my own writing, as well as my life in general. I like to read a wide range of books, but fantasy and science fiction have a special place in my heart.
Describe your desk
I'd like to say my desk is perfectly organized and decorated, but unfortunately that isn't usually the case. I have a small cork board with a map of my book's world and a few important notes. And then the rest of my desk is covered in papers and files, with my computer perched precariously on top.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I did a lot of thinking and researching before deciding to go the indie route. Ultimately, one of the biggest motivations for me was the freedom and flexibility of self publishing.
