Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
As I was writing The Outliers, Ted and Andy (the main characters) were very adamant about me making their story available to the world. I'm still not sure why it was so important to them, but I made a promise.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords is a wonderful resource for everyone from professionals to laypersons to get their work out there for others to read. Personally, I feel some excitement every time I publish a new story, and I hope that never goes away.
