Interview with Brenda Wardle

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I was motivated by the fact that I was restless. Going the traditional publishing route felt rather inhibiting. I had no desire to face rejection.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I only joined today so I will come back and answer the question.
What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on 'The Athenaeum: Proof of Guilt Beyond Reasonable Doubt!'
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything because without them, the flowing of my creative juices would be meaningless!
