Powers Molinar


Powers Molinar grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago and earned engineering and business degrees at the University of Iowa. While he works as a process engineer and project manager during the day, his passion is writing science fiction. His first novel, Spartanica, is the culmination of several year's of part-time effort mostly late at night and on weekends when he wasn't enjoying time with his wife and kids, all of whom were big helpers getting Spartanica written.

Powers' dream is to write sci-fi full-time and to get to know the readers of his books. Reading excellence, being creative, and achieving success are goals Powers holds for every kid and he hopes his books are a helpful, entertaining part of every reader's experience.

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has been such a huge help getting my novel published. The site gave me all the information and online tools I needed to make it happen. The distribution network is unparalleled and crucial for a wide spectrum of visibility, especially for new authors.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I find the greatest joy of writing to be when someone comes up to me out of the blue and talks about a part of my novel and just loves it. It's so fun to hear them talk through what they liked, what surprised them, and how entertaining they found it.
