Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I always wanted to write my own manga inspired story, so why not write it? I took the risk and wrote the book. At first I thought of making a fan fiction, but the story got so expansive that I had to modify and make it original. The result was worth it.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Because I wanted to write stories my way. I wanted to write in my own style free from "genre influence" but I also need to take into consideration the reader who will read this. So I had to research all possible tropes and cliches because I've read that readers read stories just for those and ignore the ones that don't contain those things. Scary!
