For as long as I can remember, I have been filling notebooks and journals with notes, ideas, story lines and snippets of fairy tales. My dream of becoming a fulltime author was finally realized when I retired in October 2012. Since then, I have surrendered myself to the blissful pursuit of my passion, which is writing enchanting stories for children of all ages.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Well, I developed a passion for story telling when I was very young. I kept notebooks and journals of ideas, story lines and characters for children's stories, with the hope of one day becoming a published author. After retiring in 2012, I was able to focus most of my time on writing, editing and rewriting my stories until they were ready to share with the world. That was the easy part. I struggled through the agony of submitting my work to publishers and agents, looking for someone to share my vision and appreciate my talent. There were no takers. Then one day my baby sister said, "Why don't you try Smashwords?" To which I replied, "What in the world is Smashwords?" Needless to say, she gave me the link and I spent the whole day discovering exactly what Smashwords was all about. Mark Coker presented me with an offer I could not refuse. I could present my work to the whole world without having to deal with publishers or agents. And the best part is that it's free!
