Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
You know, I have always enjoyed writing as I have been keeping a journal for over twenty-five years. Writing is a muse for me! A little over fifteen years ago, I started seriously thinking about the possibility of writing a book. Since entering the literary world was all new to me, I pondered about what genre of book that I would begin writing and who would I target to read my books. Therefore, since I have always enjoyed inspiring, encouraging and motivating others, I knew that I wanted to continue doing so and felt that I could continue my passion through writing books. This is how my first book "A Single Woman's Parenting Journey: Survival Tidbits" was born. I wrote this book to encourage and inspire other single mothers. And, the rest is history!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joys of writing for me are being able to utilize my God given talent to express myself through the creative process and being given the opportunity to inspire, encourage, entertain, educate and ignite thought provoking conversations through my books.
