Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have been a writer for a long time. I've done some freelance work, I've sold my work to magazines and I worked as a journalist and newspaper editor for a while. I had a good idea what the industry was like and I knew that publishing houses were being inundated with new material all the time. I really just wanted to see my work out there for readers to enjoy and I knew that I had the skill and talent to do just that. Since publishing my first novel I have learned a great deal and I know that my next writing endeavors will be that much better.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is creating. Through my words I am able to build an entire universe and create an image of that universe in the minds of others. The characters I write about become family and it is awesome to watch those characters interact with the world I have created.
