Interview with Private Galaxies

Describe your desk
My desk is a disaster, but I mostly only use that for playing video games. Bills, record player, headphones, controller, chargers, USB hub... cables and dust everywhere.

I write with my laptop, usually on a couch, in bed, in a coffee shop or library, or if I get inspiration when I'm out and about, on my phone or in small notebooks.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Next question.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Doing what I do independently allows me to not worry about *if* content will go public, but also allows me the control over the when and the how. I've been lucky to be featured in some pretty cool venues out in the real world, but I'm still not by any means popular, so it's easier to just do stuff myself.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The angst and release of having an idea and then getting it saved or put on paper before I forget. Some times I get really mentally wrapped up inside the characters I write that I can't do anything but write.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wish that I could... or then again maybe I don't want to. Haha!
What do you read for pleasure?
Currently I read a lot of science fiction... some cheesy stuff, some classic stuff, some new stuff. Additionally, I enjoy some literary fiction, nonfiction and poetry. It really depends on my mood, but lately I've been reading more and more.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Goodreads!
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have an Amazon Fire tablet which I use a lot lately but I think I'll get a real Kindle soon. Gotta save my eyes.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Someday I can answer this.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Working a real job, playing video games, spending quality time w/family, and fighting depression.
What are you working on next?
My new rap album and fragrance line.
