Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I wrote this book because people I know struggle with emotional baggage. Negative thoughts and beliefs from their past that keep them from living a full life. I really want people to create the life they secretly crave because now more than ever we have almost everything we need to make our dreams come true at our fingertips. It's the perfect time to go after it all.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
In one word - Opportunity! I've always love to read but didn't think I could be an author because of all the gatekeepers and hurdles such as finding an agent to sign me, a publisher to back my book and a distributor to offer it to the public. Once I noticed the hurdles falling and my access to readers was direct, there was no reason not to fulfill my dream of becoming an author.
