Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec Canada, and I firmly believe living in this amazing, sexy and exciting city provides me with the perfect setting for my books!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love the freedom to write without having to adhere to strict guidelines and storylines that many publishers require. Indie books are amazing as they are unique as the author, not the publisher is in control of what is released. I am able to discuss my writing with readers, and their input, advise and suggestions has been invaluable in helping me decide which direction a story or series takes.

Smashwords book reviews by Karena Marie

  • Hamelin's Child on May 25, 2013

    AMAZING READ!! Unique and exciting plot! Extremely well written. This book grabs on to you from the first page and does not let go! I definately recommend this book to my friends!
  • Paying The Piper on June 04, 2013

    Sequel to the amazing Five Star Hamelins's Child, this book continues to excite and thrill as we see how the main character moves on and deals with the events we saw him endure in the first book, as well as a whole new set of circumstances he becomes caught up in. Sequels sometimes repeat the themes or plots from the original book. Not a case with Paying The Piper. The book can easily stand alone, but I would definitely recommend reading Hamelin's Child first. DJ Bennett has a real gift for writing. I thoroughly enjoyed Paying The Piper. I will now buy any book written by Bennett knowing that any novel with her name on it will be a high quality read!
  • A World of Possibility on July 16, 2013

    Amazing collection of short stories! Covering a wide range of genres, one can read a 'sample' of work from the talented authors of ASMSG. I read stories in genres and from authors I had not yet discovered. Several of my friends also downloaded this free anthology, and we had a great time discussing our favourite stories, characters, scenes and authors. Cannot beat the price...FREE!
