Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
My experience of life has left me with a lot to share, but few people to actually share it with. By writing, I put what I have learned in telling situations, which allows me to share my life experience with my readers in an entertaining way.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to surprise the reader with new ideas as well as share succesfully my life experience.
