Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I have a couple of short stories coming up and I'm still working on a bigger book, which I've been working on for some time now. This book will focus on empowering girls and women with body image issues, especially women with a small bust, to build confidence and love themselves.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Besides the fact that freelancers have to hustle to make a living, I'm inspired by my own ideas and optimism. I have new ideas every day, believe it or not, and I usually cannot wait to write about it. I could write on my works in progress for hours, if life -- and social media distraction -- allowed. I badly want to reach a bigger audience, both in English and Spanish, so the thought of how I'm going to do this also motivates me to get up every day.
