Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
I have a great number of favorite authors, but I have to say than none have inspired me as much as Sir Terry Pratchett and his Discworld creation. The fact is--his career has been a light for me in the creation of Wanted Hero and the plans I crafted in how I wanted to both write and promote the series.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I'm not sure I always feel inspired to get out of bed.

Beds are comfortable.

I do love writing and creating though--and so, yes, knowing I'm going to be crafting something to make a reader smile...or encourage them to do something amazing themselves...THAT is what gets me up and going most days.

...or I stay in bed,

Beds are comfortable.
