I researched traditional publishing, and realized that if I wanted my books to be published and available to others who are probably facing challenges in their lives, hoping that my stories would encourage them to know that they can be victorious, it was best for me to go the indie way.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is being able to put all of the emotions I am experiencing onto the blank page and getting some relief without having to bother anyone.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I am new to Smashwords, so I can't answer that question right now, but I have gained so much insight into the world of publishing from the resources it has made available to me, and for that, I am thankful.
When did you first start writing?
I started taking my writing more seriously after I retired and in my 60s.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a story about a young girl who grew up in a time when she endured certain stigmas simply because of who she was.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book is two-fold, one accept who you are, and two be happy with who you are.
