Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The Woes of a Ginger named Red is inspired by many challenges I had to personally overcome as a child. Of course, the book is a fiction so it is filled with some reality and some fictional flair, as well! Being an epileptic child is difficult and I realized there are not enough epileptic protagonists in the Middle Grade realm of fiction! Knowing a lot about the struggles from personal experience, I created Ginger for all those children who need to know other kids share their struggles.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
When my son was a baby (he is 21 now!) I began having so any ideas for stories that I had to write them down. Some grew into books, while others remained ideas on a list. After 20 years of trying to nudge my way into the industry, I took it upon myself to pave my own way. There is more than one path that leads to a destination. If none of them are right for you--make your own. Nobody will believe in your dream as much as you and it is important to promote it with love and courage. This is what I am doing.
