Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
In my 10 years of training young athletes, I found that many young athletes weren't able to continue with their sport without the help of sponsorship. I wanted to help young athletes stay in their sport and obtain their sporting goals.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Writing an eBook was a cost effective way to get the message out to young athletes or their parents. It is an easy way to compile really helpful information at a reason price. I love helping young athletes and this was a great way to do that outside of my training and coaching.
