Willow Sanders

Biography

Most of these are always written in third person, as if the author isn't the one actually writing them. So, I'm going to be a rule-breaker and write it in first person instead. I'm a native Chicagoan, vegetarian, and lover of big words. I randomly burst out into song, and have been known to carry on entire conversations (with those worthy of the challenge) in song lyrics. The same can also be said for movie quotes. I'm quirky, sarcastic, I've been told at times I can be a bit esoteric, but overall I'd rather be dancing in the rain than waiting for the storm to pass.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm an avid swimmer- I swim between a mile and a half and two miles every day. In the past, prior to the "Great Meniscus Tear of 2013" I also competed in triathlons, however, now that the ole knee isn't what she used to be, Triathlons are out. I also have an unhealthy addiction to my Kindle, and probably read a book every two days... I'm pretty sure that Amazon has a picture of me up in the corporate headquarters in a gold frame with arrows and rhinestones and confetti that reads "#1 Customer" or "She pays our salary." I also love music and try to go to as many concerts as I can. Summertime in Chicago means outdoor concerts at Ravinia- which has been a tradition for as long as I can remember. My friends from High School and I have countdown calendars as to when the schedule comes out.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I'm part of a book club (a live in person book club I mean), so some of the books come from recommendations by my friends. I also belong to a few Facebook groups that offer free or discounted e-books, I depend heavily on Amazon's "recommendations" bar along the bottom of the page, and I'm on Goodreads, and see what other people are reading. I'll read pretty much anything if it sounds interesting - though memoirs, non-fiction, and other boring fuddy-duddy type of books typically don't receive a second glance from me. Because I tear through books, I tend to be kind of cheap when searching for books, and will a lot of times read the ones for .99 -2.99. I read a lot of inde work, and will watch the trends on Twitter, Goodreads, and look at the Amazon top sellers list to find books I haven't read yet that other people are talking about.
