Interview with Maxx Frost

What do you read for pleasure?
I read fantasy adventure books. My favourites are Game of Thrones, The Divine Comedy, things like that.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I don't like reading e-books much, but I use Wattpad a lot.
Describe your desk
Covered in papers and books and art materials. You can't even see it.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up as the different kid in a small town, so I had a lot of time to just imagine, and all that imagining lead to really neat stories.
When did you first start writing?
Probably when I was in elementary school.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest actual book isn't done yet, (you can find it on Wattpad) but the story behind it is this; My girlfriend and I role-play on Facebook. It's a Harry Potter based role-play. We have this couple, and they're super adorable together, but he's a giant man-whore and she's a bull-headed sweetheart. They're total opposites, but at the same time, they're soulmates, and you just can't picture them with anyone else. Anyways, she said "Hey, their story would make a neat book". So I started writing it. And it's turning out to be a big hit, I'm so proud.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'm not sure. Something to do, really.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Making people happy when they read what I've written. It's nice to know someone read my story, and that made them feel better.
What do your fans mean to you?
I don't even think about having fans, really. Not to be mean, though. I just never thought I'd be good enough to have fans, other than my friends. But if I HAD fans, they'd mean the world to me, of course.
What are you working on next?
Mostly fanfictions.
Who are your favorite authors?
George R. R. Martin, J. K. Rowling, and Stephen King are at the top.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My girlfriend.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Um.. Yeah.. Sleeping mostly. Or, like, I'm on YouTube or Tumblr.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yeah. It was about a water nymph, in fifth grade. I never finished it, though. It wasn't good enough.
