Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have three amazing kids and a wonderful husband that I try to spend as much time as possible with. Exercise is also a passion of mine and I'm currently training for a half marathon.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I love hearing about new books and authors from my readers! Aside from that, social media is a big discovery driver for me and I find Amazon's recommendations to be fairly on point most of the time.
