Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Basically just seeing the scenes in my head become actual words on paper, in this case, a PDF document. And being able to share it with the world.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I like to relax and in a way clear my mind by watching movies on DVD and Blu-ray, which I am an avid collector of. I recently became a fan of PS4, so I spend time on playing games on that too. I have a bunch of close friends and relatives who became inspirations of the main characters of Lone Creek, who I hang out with regularly.

Finally, I listen to music. I recently became a fan of soft instrumental music, and I highly recommend you take a listen to David Tolk's In Reverence, also Hiatus.
