T Gephart

Biography

T Gephart is an indie author from Melbourne, Australia.

T's approach to life has been somewhat unconventional. Rather than going to University, she jumped on a plane to Los Angeles, USA in search of adventure. While this first trip left her somewhat underwhelmed and largely depleted of funds it fueled her appetite for travel and life experience.

With a rather eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history, T struggled to find her niche in the world.

While on a subsequent trip the United States in 1999, T met and married her husband. Their whirlwind courtship and interesting impromptu convenience store wedding set the tone for their life together, which is anything but ordinary. They have lived in Louisiana, Guam and Australia and have travelled extensively throughout the US. T has two beautiful young children and one four legged child, Woodley the wonder dog.

An avid reader, T became increasingly frustrated by the lack of strong female characters in the books she was reading. She wanted to read about a woman she could identify with, someone strong, independent and confident who didn't lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldn't let it go.

T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colourful characters. This inevitably spills into her writing and makes for an interesting journey - she is well and truly enjoying the ride!

Based on her life experiences, T has plenty of material for her books and has a wealth of ideas to keep you all enthralled.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Late 2012. I was reading a lot of the "Mummy Porn" books going around and couldn't identify with the female characters. Originally I was only writing to share with my friends but once I started I truly enjoyed the process and loved losing myself in the story. I loved the characters so much I didn't want it to end and once I shared it with the small group I had originally written for they encouraged me to release it to the masses. So it is a very happy accident that I find myself writing but I love it and look forward to my time losing myself in the pages.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love the process from start to finish. Firstly coming up with a concept and the different personalities that will play out in the story. I love the shaping of the characters and the taking them on a journey. I love refining the story and producing a story that is polished and well thought out and I love that then I can share that and allow people to lose themselves in my words. That what I have written has made them laugh, cry, feel or identify with the people on the pages. Knowing that people are enjoying my work is the ultimate reward.
