Retired information technology manager now working as a poet and author.
What's the story behind your latest book?
As a person who practices Zen meditation and who writes poetry in the haiku genre, I've come to understand the link between the meditation and the poetry. The haiku leads to the meditation and the meditation leads to the haiku. They are one and the same.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I feel that traditional publishers have placed rigorous limitations on authors because the publishers have found that a particular formula for style, genre, book length, etc. makes them money. Authors who fall outside of the criteria of that formula simply won't be published even though they are wonderful writers.
