Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Honestly, it's complicated. After years of not reading for pleasure, my husband gave me an e-reader for Christmas. I found my love for reading again and my appetite was voracious. I began reading indie authors and found inspiration in their stories, both fictional and real. At the same time, I was looking for a way to supplement my income to save money for my children's college fund. One day I thought "Hmm? I bet I could do this". I started dabbling with a story that eventually became "Fenced Hearts".
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has given me the power over my destiny. I didn't have to be at the mercy of a traditional publishing house. It's also helped me grow by enabling me to learn their system of formatting which has strengthened my technical skills.
