Smashwords Interview

What inspired you to write your book?
Writing a book for me was really a case of wanting to share some helpful knowledge and experience with other musicians and creative people so they might be inspired to have a go and still be able to pay the bills. For many of us being creative comes at a financial cost - i wanted to change that so that at the very least having a creative hobby could actually grow to become something bigger and a good income source at the same time.
What do you read for pleasure?
I like to read how to books and magazines - something that will teach me how to do something and add a skill to my life. I can then use this to help others.
