My name is Ken Waters and I migrated to L.A. from South Florida via Massachusetts where I grew up. The links to the various websites coupled with the online interviews kinda give you a good feel for who I am and what I've been plugging away at.

What motivated you to become an indie author?

I found several publishers showing interest but they all wanted a steep percentage, it was ridiculous the amount of money they wanted to make, needless to say it was their money they would be investing but it still didn't seem fair so I kept passing on the deal, and at the time, I didn't want to self publish so I just kept writing and sat on the content. Now, today, it's no longer suicide to self publish, and is the thing to do. There are people making a nice living by penning and peddling their work on the Internet.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I get to create characters and bring them in any direction I want, plus I make my own hours.
