Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
It all started at school. I had an English teacher who always told me that I could do better even though I was always in the top ten percent for marks. I re-wrote my essays numerous times until I felt satisfied with my writing. As with many people, I started to write a diary and wrote about things that I didn’t want to share with anybody else. Things, that I was proud of and that made me happy. My diary became my best friend because I didn’t need to pretend. I was who I was.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
As I stated in my book, there is something very positive about the act of committing to paper. I realized that putting my thoughts into writing allowed me to think clearer. The greatest joy of writing for me is to share. I share my experiences with the hope that I can help someone to minimize their struggle and achieve better in life.
