Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I am A Baby Boomer from the 50s, and had vast experience in all forms of writing in my roles within industry. I wanted to take these skills along with my energetic imagination to produce the most innovative fiction novel I could.

Essentially I wanted to break free from day-to-day limitations of writing tender documents and corporate policies and employ both sides of the brain as a team, that comes from a combination of my story telling capabilities and writing skills

My extensive travel and research landed me with the concept for The Vytautus Pursuit. In melding the intense and varied history of Lithuania and its forefathers with daring concepts and linkages throughout, I hope this first offering will provide readers of this genre with a new avenue of escape.
In making this move to indie authorship, I hope the reader will be spellbound from Page 1 and once finished will be impatient in awaiting the next in the series.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy is quite simple. The joy of creation is very special. Whether it be a piece of art, an interpretation of a classical ballet in translation into dance, laying down a new music album as a group or solo performer, or as a writer, be it a novel, a non-fiction work, poetry or play.

I sure as heck cant draw, sing or dance, so my writing gives me the joy of delivering something thats creative and original to the world.
