Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first began writing in earnest back in 2005, with my first novel, "Sumner Gardens," a semi-autobiographical look back at my childhood. Upon completing it, I said to myself, anyone can write ONE book, but if you want to be a WRITER then you need to write more than one. So, I immediately began writing "Hope Town," my first attempt at a thriller. Funny, some readers have said that "Hope Town" almost feels like a sequel to "Sumner Gardens," and in a way, they're right.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Gonna cheat a little here, because the first "story" I ever wrote happened after I wrote my first two novels. After writing those and having no luck finding an agent or publisher, I thought maybe if I tried my hand at short stories, had a few published, it would burnish my resume and perhaps THEN I might attract some interest.

So, the first short story I ever wrote was titled "Ohrwurm," and it came to me almost fully formed. I knew the beginning, the middle, and the ending, before I wrote a single word. I was delighted to have it accepted into a small publishers first anthology, and it later appeared in a "Best of" collection from that same publisher.
