Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I inherited a greyhound just over a year ago and we love long countryside walks together. I'm also training for a barefoot walk round the coast of mainland Britian to raise awareness and money for shark conservation.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I'm a real browser. I like to have a good old grub round and see what catches my eye. I look at the title and the cover, then I read the blurb and if it appeals to me I'll give it a go. I rarely search keywords unless I'm looking for non-fiction.
