Interview with Michelle Louise Hind

When did you first start writing?
I would have to say it started in high school, I wrote a few poems and then some short stories and it went from there.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Hart strong started off as a one page assignment for a writing course I was doing about 4 years ago, where you had to write suspense and hook your readers at the end.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love to read and that led me to write, I had dreamed of one day having one of my books published. With the support and encouragement from my family and friends my dream came true. For me just having my book out there for all to see is amazing and scary all at the same time, its also about following your dreams and never giving up.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I would never have know how to self publish my book without them so they are a huge part of my dreams coming true, which I thank them for. The style guide is a huge help for someone like me that can use a computer to write her manuscript but really has no clue otherwise, I have only just got good at emailing.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing for me is an escape and stress relief, when you have six kids it can sometimes get a little crazy ( but I love them ). It allows me, even if its for five minutes, to lose myself into a world that is not mine and give me the break that we all need now and then. The feeling of bringing new character to life and giving them a voice and getting to share in there journey is great.
What do your fans mean to you?
As I have only just published my first book I'm not sure I have any fans yet, but if I do I thank them for using their time to read my book without their support I don't have success and that means a lot.
What are you working on next?
As Hart strong is a three book series I'm working on number two and three, but I do have other books going too I just need to finish them.
Who are your favorite authors?
I don't have a favorite author but I will share some of the ones I like to read, Rachel Caine, Richelle Mead, Brigid Kemmerer, Lauren Kate, LiLi St.Crow, Alyson Noel and Jana Oliver. I enjoyed reading their books and have read them more than once.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a taxi for my kids and their sports. I like watching movies and reading and just spending time as a family on our farm.
What is your writing process?
I don't really have a process. If I get an idea I sit at my computer and write. I write as I go I'm not one to sit down and plan each chapter it just all comes out while I write.
