Interview with Kansas Moskwik

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Michigan and Upstate New York. I moved back and forth a lot when I was younger. It has honestly influenced my writing a lot. I've been through so much with moving, I had so many new journeys that I had to start then end. For a while, it was on a repeating cycle. So I have had to deal with a lot and it made me not only a stronger person but a stronger writer. The more I went through the stronger my writing as gotten.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
For me it is the magic that I can do. I can do anything, say anything, having anything just by writing it on a piece of paper. I can lose myself for days in my writing, the whole time in my own world. The greatest joy of writing is the world I have created.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I do. I believe I wrote it when I was about three or four. It was a short story about this bridge and these teenagers crossing it. And halfway across the bridge they all have a vision and it lasts for hours but to them it seems like just minutes. I still have the story to this day.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Honestly, my fiance.
What is your writing process?
Usually, I have to be in a certain mood. Sometimes I can go weeks without being in that mood other times it stays for months, I never know. But when I am in that mood thats when the writing comes. I really don't have a process to it. I just do it. I keep a journal with me to write down all the little ideas i think of and then I try to make something of them. Sometimes I get something good and other times I don't, it all depends.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read a lot for pleasure. Basically anything I can get my hands on. I personally love fantasy novels, and erotica.
Describe your desk
Anywhere I can set my laptop down. Don't have a desk really. I prefer just my laptop and a place to set it down. It's like a portable desk.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Cannibalism. Thats all I have to say about that.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I noticed a few people I know get a fan base on wattpad and on here, so I though I would give it a shot.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything.
