Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I am writing short stories that occurred during the time the Alpha Centauri system collapsed and a strong gravity wave was sent toward the sun. Unfortunately earth was on the path of the wave. Now many people have strange stories to tell and I am putting them on paper.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
After I received a few rejections from big publishing companies, with a note praising the novel idea regarding the gravity wave, I decided to try the indie route and see what type of feedback I would get.
