If you had a writing motto what would it be?
Write anyway. It's more fun than not writing.

Where do you draw your inspiration?
Whenever I get writer's block, it means I'm bored. To write well, first I need to do interesting things. For me that's travel to new places and attending live performance events.

What is one interesting fact about you?
At the age of five I lived in Mati, Davao Oriental, Philippines. We lived near a very shallow beach where, at high tide, the water was still only waist-deep. A friend showed me how to find sea horses living among the seaweed there.

Have you learned anything from the self publishing process and would you do anything differently next time?
I will stay involved with writers groups and other independent authors. They all know how to do the things that I don't.

What has been your most successful marketing strategy?
So far I have made most of my sales through personal interaction with people. This can be very hard, as I am a bit shy. People often ask unexpected questions and you have to come up with a reasonable answer very quickly.

What is the best kept secret you have found in regard to indie publishing?
You can make a living providing well-written stories to the world, but it does take hard work and persistence.
