Seth Ulinski is the talented author of Amazing Heights: How Short Guys Stand Tall. Today I share my exclusive author interview with Seth. Ulinski shares how he began his writing journey and his goals for the future- enjoy!
When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
In the 5th grade I won a Young Author's award but it wasn't until I was working as an IT industry analyst that I realized how much I enjoyed writing.
Can you share your journey to becoming a published author?
It was about 10 months from when I started the manuscript to publishing the book. I left my job about two months into the process so I could give the project my full attention. Challenging and fun - a great character builder and life experience.
What do you find to be the biggest challenge, as an author?
Many times, I felt like I was on my own island. However, there are people ready and willing to help if you simply ask.
