What inspires you to write?
Knowledge of the world around me is usually what inspires to write. Once I find a topic that interests me I become consumed with learning all that I can and then presenting my new-found knowledge to others to learn from.
Tell us about your writing process.
I usually do online research on the topics I’m inspired by. I’m a bit old fashioned as I keep all my notes on paper or written all over a calender pad on my desk.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I choose to write and self-publish as a hobby. I enjoy what I’m doing and for me that is enough. For now I exclusively use Amazon as the publishing platform just because it is simple. If my hobby turns into something bigger, maybe I will expand distribution.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I make a point to process all of my ebooks through Createspace so each one will have a printable version. Ebooks are huge now but, shelves filled with real books are classy and will never go away.
What genres do you write?: Non-fiction, Self-help
What formats are your books in?: eBook, Print, Both eBook and Print
