Angelo Bell

Biography

Angelo is an author, a screenwriter, an award-winning director and a producer with credits in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium and the UAE. His blog has been active for longer than most and he freely shares his creative experiences. I have organized industry contests, worked film festivals and supported award shows. His experiences include a decade of making films, screenwriting, independent-filmmaking, and pitching TV shows (he had TV pilot development deals). His first love has always been epic sci-fi/fantasies and action thrillers. He hopes to merge the two genres in his book-writing career. In fact, he has his next three sci-fi thrillers already titled, outlined and ready to write.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I knew in the third grad that I wanted to become a writer, I just didn't know what form. At the time, the simplest (not easiest) choice was to become an author. I eventually tried other forms of writing and ended up joining the independent film bandwagon. Emerging technology allowed writers to become filmmakers. Now the technology allows aspiring writers to become published authors. For me the challenge was writing and finishing a book. After years of talking about it I finally settled down and adapted an old script into a novel. The experience was transforming. In film and TV many other people control your experience. I decided I didn't want to wait for someone else to tell me it was okay to sell my book. I wanted to control my writing career personally.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I'm new on Smashwords. I'll let you know when I know.
