Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book, The Price of Love, is a continuation of my family saga, The Legacy Series. It was a difficult book to write because of the expectations of readers who loved book one and two. Now, I'm being begged for number four! Finally, I've relented to write The Price of Passion, but make no promises upon timelines and release.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I became an indie author because I pursued writing late in life. Who wants to wait years at my age to find an agent or publisher? I shudder to think I could have died and never made it in print waiting for someone to pick up a book. After networking with others, I learned about the publishing industry, cover design, interior design, editing, marketing, and distribution. It's been an education that I do not regret and have enjoyed because of the freedom being an indie affords me.
