Interview with PussyG

What's the story behind your latest book?
This collection of comedic shorts is my first attempt at writing. I have taken some of the more humourous events in my life and gave them a little bit of a life of their own. These stories have all been modified to protect the identities of the people that were involved.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I am using writing as a method of therapy to delve deep inside myself and help to better understand what has motivated me to make some of the decisions that have ultimately shaped my life and led me down a path of self-destruction.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love to make people laugh, sometimes when I am writing I spend so much time laughing I can hardly type.
What do your fans mean to you?
I don't have any fans.... yet.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a serial auto-biography that will be a tell-all of all the tragedies, successes and failures in my life so far. I hope to eventually have a musical based on my life. A modern tragedy, comedy and triumph unlike ever before.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite author is Stephen King hands down, he is amazing.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My family.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I also sing and songwriter... a lot. I have an album that I am producing for release this fall or early next year. 5 self written songs and 8 songs from an excellent songwriter I am blessed to know.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Not really, but I do remember getting an F in creative writing in the 6th grade.... oh Miss Jackson, if you could only see me now!
What is your writing process?
I just sit down and let 'er rip. And laugh and laugh and laugh. I also stare at the fireplace and watch the fire while my ideas form.
How do you approach cover design?
For the first ebook I simply used imikimi, the next one I will hire out to a graphic artist.
Describe your desk
Don't have one, I work best in a mess.
