Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
1) I'm going to reach back into my childhood and say Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. I can't remember how many times I read and re-read that book. I'm a sucker for horses. It was the first time I saw the world through eyes of a horse.
2) Then, when I got older, I moved onto Walter Farley's The Black Stallion and the rest of The Black Stallion book series. I still had my equine fixation.
3) Charles Bukowski's Love is a Dog from Hell. I read this during my university days. It was my first real exposure to poetry. I still don't get poetry but I enjoyed reading his book. I think I liked because of the salty language he used and was very unapologetic about it.
4) Delta of Venus by Anaïs Nin. I started exploring erotica in the written word probably after my small reading stint with Bukowski. I had read erotica anthologies before I finally read Nin's work. I just like her writing style and the imagery was vivid for me.
5) Even though I'm trying to work my way through it when I get the time, I would say Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories, Vol.1&2. Love a good mystery, love good sleuthing. Although that doesn't explain why I haven't gotten around to reading more contemporary authors like, Scott Turow, Dennis Lehane or Steig Larsson. One day, I might give them a go.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I feel I have stories to tell and I don't necessarily want to be encumbered by the process of having to submit a manuscript to a publisher or literary agent, and wait for months hoping they'll like me enough to want to talk to me or sign me to a contract. The only way to know whether or not I'm a good storyteller is to let the reader decide and react to it. I'm proud of what I've written and I want to share.
