What motivated you to become an indie author?
I became an indie author because I lost a bet to my husband. I had already written several fiction manuscripts and short stories. They are taking up one drawer of my desk but I never did anything further with them. I would do National Novel Writing Month year after year and just pile up the manuscripts. I also like to give advice; to help people find what they need. Well one day my husband told me I should write down all of the etiquette rules my father and mother had taught me. He then proposed a bet with the stakes being if I lost I had to submit my etiquette book for publication. This resulted in my first indie publication, Etiquette As I Learned It. I lost the bet but it was the best bet I ever lost.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read a lot of different things for fun. I am a big fan of paranormal fantasy such as the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne and The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. I read a lot of mystery. I read romance. I also listen to a lot of nonfiction audio books. I recently heard Blink by Malcolm Gladwell which I enjoyed and a finance one that I will not mention as I did not particularly enjoy it. I currently have Cold Days by Jim Butcher going as an audio book and I am reading Wild Invitation by Nalini Singh in paperback. I also have Rapture in Death by JD Robb going as an ebook.
