Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
It is the ongoing story of time traveling heroes. Second Options more or less picks up where First Strike left off. But also begins to give insights into the past lives of our heroes and villains. We learn a lot more about Jack Sterling's past, while Lownsbury struggles on his own to keep the villainous Senator from finding his daughter. We also begin to have insights into mankind's deep past and how the Machine helped to shape our history.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have always loved writing. It is the one medium in which one can express oneself clearly, and concisely. And... as an independent author, one also does not have to place their future into someone else's hands. Relying on oneself represents the epitome of meritocracy where success or failure is determined by ones own efforts.
