Andrew G. Schneider always wanted to be a wizard when he grew up; now he makes magic with words. When not writing, he hunts the wild dust bunny and makes a mean pot of French onion soup. He lives in Washington, D.C., believes in unicorns, and is married to a wonderful woman who believes in him.
When did you first start writing?
Serious writing? My father made me a dare: "You read so many books, why don't you try writing one." He's regretted that offhand comment ever since... (Addendum: My mother believes she actually made the above comment, and declares she "is never wrong". One for the books, folks.)
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Consistent rejection and praise. Agents weren't interested in my novels, even as I earned excellent reviews from friends and family I could trust to be critical. As my wife said: "I wouldn't marry you if I thought you were self-delusional."
