I started writing as a way through the process. Of navigating what was happening. It started off as a blog. Then it just grew. People started having an active interest in it. The writing. The experience. I kept going. I didn't know it was going to be a book when I started. I was just writing as a way to get through.
With non-fiction, I like to write practical books of the how-to type, helping my readers to achieve something. It's rewarding to play a part in a reader's success. For example, with Twitter for Writers, I show writers how to use Twitter to improve your writing, network with other authors, meet fans, build a platform, gain exposure, find reviewers and sell books.
