About krista marson:
Hello, my name is Krista, and I was a travel agent back in the day when there was such a thing. The '90s were good to me and I got to bounce around the globe on the last bit of coattails that was once the booming travel agent industry. I am currently in the process of writing out my travel tales.
What inspires you to write?
I've traveled extensively and have many unique experiences to share. Everyone has always told me that I needed to write my travel stories down. So, one day I did, and I haven't yet stopped!
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
I love reading John Muir, Victor Hugo, Vincent Van Gogh, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Henry David Thoreau (in no particular order).
Tell us about your writing process.
I use my journals and photographs for inspirations. I wrote an outline for what I thought was going to be one book and discovered that I had enough fodder to write at least four volumes. When I wrote my first book, it took me four years, and it turned out that I actually wrote out all four books without knowing that I did.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I am a non-fiction writer of travel memoirs.
What advice would you give other writers?
You should love being a reader first before you attempt becoming a writer.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Being an unknown author, I found it impossible to secure an agent. I wound up self-publishing because I had a good story to share and I didn't want to wait any longer to send it out into the world.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
There will always be a reading public that will yearn to read a good story. There are a hundred of ways to get books into people's hands, but the question these days is how much will the author get paid? The advent of free ebooks makes the market insanely competitive, so it is the writer's responsibly to write quality material that is worth paying money for.
What genres do you write?: non-fiction, travel, memoir
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
