Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My daughter Stephanie painted a portrait of a Mermaid for her niece who is also named Mazzy. The painting and name inspired me to write the mermaid story. It has been something I have wanted to do for a long time and I am so excited to have finished the first short story for the series.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I just finished a self publishing class that showed me all the options for publishing and I wanted to give it a shot and see how it would work for my style of writing.
