Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
The earliest I remember penning stories was in first grade. There was a classmate who was writing their own stories, so I wanted to do it, too. I'm pretty sure I was writing a cat version of 101 Dalmatians at one point. I dabbled in writing off and on for years, mostly coming up with story ideas rather than actually writing them. The romance stories started in my teen years, though.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
When I was a teenager, self-publishing wasn't a practical option and was generally considered a scam where you ended up with 1000 copies of your book sitting in the garage. I began a book review blog in 2011 and learned about how the market had changed with ebooks and ereaders. That's when self-publishing became a possibility. I did tons of research, read countless blog posts, and it felt like the right decision for me.
