What can I say about myself? Not much. I am 43 years old and live outside of El Paso with my two daughters. I enjoy reading about science, science fiction, history, action, and adventure. I also enjoy movies and TV shows of the same genre. I have always liked writing stories for my own self, but never thought about publishing one. A friend of mine looked at the latest manuscript that I was working on and told me that I needed to look at publishing it. I laughed it off at first, thinking he was just being nice. I decided to show the manuscript (still in its very early, rough form) to some other people, and they liked the story. So now, here is my first attempt.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have always enjoyed writing for personal benefit. A friend from work looked at the latest manuscript and liked the story. He told me about Smashwords and told me to try to publish it.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Honestly, without Smashwords, I probably would have never tried to publish. I have always enjoyed writing, but never enjoyed the process of trying to get anything published the traditional way.
