Three years ago I was an award-winning writer, my book Chronicles of Mark Johnson won an award from a US online non-profit making organisation indiePENdents. In the last two years, I have earned a reputation for high-action sci-fi on Barnes & Noble.
To some friends, I am a success story, to myself I am still the same person I was before – success has made little difference – if anything, the success has caused me to be more insecure about my writing, as I know have a reputation to consider.
I haven’t done much writing in the last year, I wasn’t sitting on my hands with the success of my series. I had a lot of personal issues to contend with, not the least is depression.
