Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an author?
I have always loved to write, even as young as nine years old. Loved the entertainment section of the local newspaper and all those ever exciting celebrity fan magazines. I had my first book published when I was 17. A poetry book. A local publisher, but still a book that drew the attention of regional newspapers and loyal television news coverage.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Knowing that I am going to get to my computer and start writing.
