What's the story behind your latest book?
"Nonsense for Nothing" is a compilation of essays I've written for my humor blog, imhavingalaugh.blogspot.com. I'm slightly obsessed with pop culture -- especially '90s pop culture -- so you'll find a lot of satirical essays that reference celebrities, TV shows and movies.
The book also shares my observations on the world around me. How do I feel about people who wear glasses, or online dating, or hand sanitizers? I will tell you -- with tongue planted firmly in cheek.
"Nonsense for Nothing" is intended as a light read for those who want to be entertained. I can only hope I achieved that goal.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to share my perspective with the world...and attempt to entertain readers along the way. There's no greater feeling in the world than making someone smile with your words. That's what I was aiming for with "Nonsense for Nothing," and that's why I was so anxious to share it through Smashwords.
