How did you get into writing?
My son was really disappointed after getting to the end of the Captain Underpants series so I said I would write a book for him. He really liked the book so I decided to self-publish it after reading about authors self-publishing. I enjoy writing so decided to keep going and write more books in the series.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
