F T Moore is a former defense contractor who worked in technology.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first story during class in sixth grade. It was a twenty page handwritten ghost story, which I worked on instead of doing classwork. After that, I continued to write stories to entertain my friends. Then through high school and college I wrote for and edited the school newspapers. I wrote my first full-length novel about twenty-five years ago, and continued to build up a trunk full of unpublished novels, until self-publishing arrived.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I had a non-fiction book published by a traditional publisher. It turned out they didn't do any marketing. They paid nearly a year after the books were sold. My royalties were such a small percentage of the sale, and I had no control over anything. It was an experience that made me realize I could do better on my own.
