Last question, if someone comes across this article and reads it, what would you like to tell them about why you think they should try reading your book or books? ()?
I think anyone might like my books if they want something different and shorter—something they can finish. I’m not a typical writer. J
Blog Writer's Note to Author: It seems you started writing and publishing books on the Internet a lot longer than I ever attempted to. It's quite obvious to me that writing is definitely in your blood. I was amazed to know that you are someone in your twenties and that you had published 15 books to your credit. I find that to be quite amazing. I wished I would have had the opportunity back when I was your age to have had the Internet technology and the platform to self-publish back then. The only self-publishing I had back then would have cost me thousands of dollars. I think it is so much easier on the self-published author to write and to share their work with the world today than ever before. Good luck with your future writing. It's seems to me that your writing future looks pretty bright; if it isn't already. Thanks for the interview.
