Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I spent a fair amount of time and effort submitting my first two novels to literary agents. I put a lot of weight into the notion that if I was accepted by the literary establishment I would be considered a "real-writer." Fortunately, I was reminded that the very act of writing makes me a writer, not the approval of a middle-man.

I decided that I would put my stories out to the world and define that as my success. Ultimately the stories I write aren't about my own ego or need for success; they are about my characters and telling their stories with honesty. As an indie author, I have the freedom to tell these stories and that freedom is very rewarding.
Describe your desk
I am always working from a laptop, so my desk is sometimes a couch, a pool-side lounger, a plane, or a patio.
