Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I wrote and published my first book in 2012.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I would have to say the greatest joy of writing is when my grandchildren are impatiently waiting for my next book. Another great joy is creating characters, and watching their stories unfold. And, in the case where the characters are real, I love to share their stories.

  • Boob Tube (a Soap Opera Novel) on Oct. 22, 2015

    I remember going to visit my friend in the hospital and getting caught up in the Soap Opera world with her. She got me hooked on the daytime drama. These are the exciting memories I recalled as I read this book. It was so much like what my friend and I were so wrapped up in that we hardly talked during my visit. Ireally enjoyed this book. It was a great read and full of page turning action. The book is well written and flows nicely with the characters. There are great story lines and plots. This book held me on the edge of my seat, and I loved the ending, abrupt, but we'll suited to the story. Furthermore, I would love to see it on the big screen. Well done Mark and Lesleyanne Coker. Thank you for the entertainment.
  • Danny the Duckling: Short Stories, Games, Jokes, and More! on Nov. 16, 2015
