Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The last published story that I wrote is actually A Poem that Changed a Village a Long, Long Time Ago, even though it was one of the first three to be sent to print in December 2014. The last three in the series were printed in August 2015.

A Poem that Changed a Village a Long, Long Time Ago was inspired by people talking badly about one another and spreading hurtful rumors. The two poems in the story came to me before the actual story did. Shortly after I wrote the poems, I was inspired to write the story that would encourage people to be respectful to one another and to one's self. The questions at the end of the story help us to reflect on certain situations and on ourselves. I have received many complimentary comments on this story and on the reflections at the end.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords helps promote the books all over the World. A friend helped me a great deal to get the books on Smashwords and I find it easy to manage.
