Interview with Cass MacAdams

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a Nook, a Kindle, and an Ipad. I've got all the bases covered!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to write what I like which isn't quite what the industry wants.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Aside from the Call of Nature, it would be that character that I left dangling in some precarious position in one of my many stories.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing I am probably editing ... for someone else.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Some of them I discover via word-of-mouth. The majority I find just browsing the genres that I like.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It was called What I Want To Be When I Grow Up. In the story I told the reader how I wanted to live in a certain house, in a certain town with a HUSBAND and not a wife. Needless to say, my grade school teacher, Sister Mary Fabiola, was speechless.
What is your writing process?
I always begin with a simple synopsis of at least the first five chapters. When I've completed those chapters, I write the synopses for the next five chapters. The synopses always change and never quite end up the way I envisioned but that's because I ultimately give the characters free reign and let them tell the story.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read comic books for pleasure.
Describe your desk
My desk is contemporary in style and large enough for my lap top computer, a printer, a lamp, a CD player for the Classical Music I listen to when I am writing, and two large wire baskets that hold postal mail that I need to open but I really don't bother until it begins falling to the floor.
When did you first start writing?
I've kept a journal for years. It was while I was recuperating from knee surgery that I wrote a simple story.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I've got three books going at one time but as far as my Golem Chronicles Trilogy goes, I came up with the idea one Sunday in church.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Probably just having someone enjoy reading something that I've written. Isn't that what it's about?
