What's the story behind your latest book?
It started with a question: If I knew as a teenager what I know now as an adult how would my life be different. I started creating a scenario where my character could get this knowledge and the story evolved from there.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
After I had written a few chapters I shared them with my kids. They were so taken with the story they kept requesting the next chapter. Before long I had a books worth of writing done. My family encouraged me to get it published so they could share it with their friends.
