Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a wife and mother of five children under the age of 17. When I’m not writing, I am usually ferrying the kids around to sporting events, music lessons or other school commitments. I also enjoy curling up with a good book or cooking something delicious that usually involves chocolate!
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I subscribe to online magazines such as Romance Daily News and BookBub and I always check out what’s on offer every day. I have discovered some amazing, new to me authors this way and have found it to be a reliable way to find great books.
