What motivated you to become an indie author?
It's something that I'd always wanted to do. I've always written for other people for work (blogs, magazine articles and websites) and I grew up writing roleplaying scenarios too. I've always been a reader but my passion has always been writing so I decided that it was time to finally cross over to the other side and try my hand at being a writer. Being an 'indie' author gives me flexibility and control over my work plus I get to meet some great people.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When the book is finally finished and launched it's such a sense of achievement. It's like your child or pet – it becomes part of you – you're proud of it! There's so much blood, sweat and tears that goes into it. When someone has read it and they get in touch to tell you how much they loved, it's just the best feeling. It makes is all worth while.
