Interview with Lyn Denver

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the southwest deserts of the U.S. In consequence, my writing is very often flavored with southern gentlemen, country songs, and Tex-Mex foods.
When did you first start writing?
I think the first time I sat down and wrote anything of consequence was in high school. I wrote a screenplay about teenage vampires falling in love with normal people. Sadly, I thought it was an inane concept. A decade or so later, Twilight was published. Oops!
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am an avid equestrian and have become fascinated with polo of late. While most people view the "Sport of Kings" as very glamorous, Keeping It In The Middle shows real people doing hard work everyday before dawn and every night after dusk. There's also a little love story...
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Freedom to publish my novel the way I imagined it being written.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords is an amazing simple platform with far-reaching capabilities. It's just easy.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Building worlds.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My husband, the love of my life, my horses, my dogs, my cat, my duck, my fish ... my books!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Listening to music, drinking too much caffeine...
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Mostly by word of mouth recommendation.
What do you read for pleasure?
Contemporary Romance, New Adult, Young Adult, Historical Fiction
