Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I have worked most of my adult life as a secretary, Administrative and Executive Assistant and in middle management as a supervisor. Most of my writing up until the last few years has been more in the business vein writing correspondence and employee training and instruction manuals. Over the years I have written many poems and lyrics. My new book, Susan’s Stalkers, is actually my first venture into writing a novel.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I’ve always loved mysteries and I enjoy writing. I've watched every mystery and police show on TV for years and read many mystery and murder suspense novels. After transcribing and/or typing then editing, proofing and formatting customer manuscripts for publication, I decided to write my own novel. Susan's Stalkers is my first venture into the imaginary world of a fiction writer. Smashwords was very instrumental in my motivation.
