Interview with Andrew Kerr

Describe your desk
My desk is messy. I do have specific spots for particular items. However, 'messy' best describes it.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the south eastern United States. Honestly, up to now, it doesn't have a lot of influence. I served in the military of our great nation for over 30 years, and that service has taken me all over the global and to many different places within the United States. I enjoy the challenge of picking places I do not consider to be 'home' and try to describe them so that a local of that area would believe I have been there.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Absolutely! If for no other reason, Smashwords is an affordable and conveniently way to share my stories.
Who are your favorite authors?
Steve King
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
This may seem odd, but I just pick them at random. There is so much talent and different ways to tell a story that I like to choose them at random. Typically, I go for the sci-fi.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I, like many ADD/ADHD people, have these stories that live in my head and I simply want to share them with the world.
What are you working on next?
I have three stories living in my head that I want to 'get on paper.' First is the Space Opera where I just published a small portion of. I have a story about a young girl who grows into a woman with a very special friend - A demon. Thirdly, I have this high adventure steampunk story living in my head.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have a full-time in IT. I spend time with my family when ever possible. I have several hobbies including woodworking and beer making.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
The Foundation Trilogy - Isaac Asimov
The Stand - Steven King
Lord of the Rings Trilogy - J. R. R. Tolkien
Starship Troopers - Robert Heinlein
The Atlantis Gene - A.G. Riddle

(I know - that's more than five books)
