Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book, Fear Of Flying, is semi-autobiographical. The experts always say "write what you know" but this is the first time I actually took that advice.

I am deathly afraid of flying, and many of the situations that happen in the book were actually experiences from my own life. A job as a book publicist? Check. On a nationwide book tour with a travel writer? Check. Winter de-icing of plane wings and bouts of white-knuckle clear air turbulence? Check! Even the psychic predicting I'd never die in a plane crash actually happened to me. Anyone who reads Fear Of Flying will learn a lot about me :)
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'm what they call a hybrid author. I am traditionally published, but I also self-publish. Self-publishing gives an author free rein to write the stories they want to write (possibly more niche or offbeat books) while traditional publishers tend to buy stories they think will sell to an established market. I think it makes smart economic sense to write for both outlets.
