Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Bogota, Colombia, with a definite sense of connection to Colombia and its people. Most of my childhood, however, was spent in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. I had an American father and a Colombian mother. My heritage affects my writing more than the locales I've lived in or visited, which includes 35 countries. I was first aware of my desire to write at age seven, but since I can remember past lifetimes, my inkwell dips deeper than others can remember easily. There are for sure deeper reasons and experiences that continue to affect my passion to write as much as I can today.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The plain fact is that writing a book is not like baking a cake; it's hard work, at times mind-numbing work. Writing taxes my eyes, mind, typing fingers and bottom! What I'm getting at is this: if I'm going to spend 8-12 months, sometimes longer, banging out a work that is worthy and which might change lives for the better, or at least entertain my readers, I might as well ensure that I have the best possible chance people reading my work so I can keep doing it. That's where indie publishing with Smashwords makes sense, because I know my work is going to see more exposure, earn a decent return for my efforts, and give me gratification within days after I complete and post my work. Having worked with a traditional publisher, too, I understand the pro's and con's of that route, too.
