Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I've been absorbing story from as far back as I can remember, and by age 11 I was writing outside of school. At 13 I entered a short story contest and ended up winning, the prize being publication in my school paper. I didn''t know at the time that I would end up becoming a professional storyteller, but looking back on it now, I'm sure thankful for that kid's interest in the art and craft of it! When other kids were watching cartoons, he was watching powerful dramas like Amadeus and Ghandi. And then there were the literary treasures I'd get lost in, starting in sixth grade when my school put on a reading contest. Such exposure was the foundation to who I am today.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
You know, when it comes to opportunity, the world is so random. You can have an amazing talent who spends a lifetime trying to get recognized for their work, while someone who is mediocre will be basking in the limelight of commercial success. Many people who are in the business of finding talent like to say, "Don't worry, if you have talent, you'll be found." In most cases, this is simply not true, and once I realized this I knew I couldn't let others define me. It's one of those tough truths of life. You can't depend on someone else when it comes to your legacy. What you do now is what you're going to be remembered for tomorrow, and so I stopped playing the publishing lottery and became an indie author.
