Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was orphaned at the age of seven and placed into the foster-care system. Back then, foster-care was much different than it is now. Because of the loneliness I felt, I turned to books to escape. The feeling of being transformed was euphoric; I lived for a new book, a new world to explore, new characters to get to know. I still feel that way whenever I read a good book. This is also what I want I like to give to my readers, in-depth characters, thrills on every page. I can't dream of being anything other than an author.
Have you any experience with agents?
Yes. I was actually represented at one-time by one of the best literary agencies in the business. Unfortunately, the manuscript this agency tried to sell for me didn't pass the P&L report. Most new authors won't know what that is, but for those who've been in the business a while know exactly what it is. Although my work was never published with them, I learned many things about the industry from them. My gift of conversation got me invited to lunches with New York Times bestselling authors, editors, other literary agents. I picked, picked, picked the brains of those who allowed me to. I'm now using this knowledge to launch my own success.
