Goodreads asked A.R. Hellbender:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

A.R. Hellbender Write whatever you want to write about, because if you like your own story there is probably a market for it.
Also, if you are a self-published author like me, have someone with editing expertise edit your books. (And I'm not talking about just copy editing, I'm talking about taking out unnecessary passages, etc.)
