Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Though my writing started to be well known in Kenya during my high school days, I had actually started earlier in primary school through writing great compositions that teachers read in class then writing for Magazines like Rainbow. I had also won numerous prizes. When I joined Kenyatta university in Nairobi, I immediately contacted the Sunday Nation editors who engaged me to write about publishing and children's fiction...I actually had a very comfortable live in K.U...with checks every month. Writing for the Sunday Nation opened new doors. I was soon writing several Kenya newspapers including the People Daily, and B Times published by Kemtrust these publications helped to polish my writing and improve my editing skills.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Writing is very draining and after finishing 'A Weed in Paradise' the last thing I wanted were rejections from literary agents. I queried only one and after several months he wrote back....agents are great but they are not for every one. I couldn't stand the rejection letters. I uploaded my manuscript at Smashwords and Amazon... the rest is history.
