As a child I've always had a vivid imagination, but it wasn't until I was in a swimming accident and becoming paralyzed due to having my neck broken at the age of 14 that I could bring my imagination to life, through writing. My life has undoubtedly been harsher than others, being forced to live in a wheelchair and all, but my imagination, personality and drive to continue has helped me to write. It's impossible to know if I'd still write if not for being a quadriplegic, but I've come to enjoy writing and sharing my passion and stories with others.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Most definitely. As a handicapped individual there isn't much money with which I can spend on frivolous ideas, but because it is free to publish as well as sending my books to multiple retailers i get out in the world and the rates charged to each sale is modest and reasonable. It is amazing what this company allows anyone to accomplish dreams, especially for those who cannot afford to so.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
