Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Kindergarten?? Just kidding! I published my first short story in 4th grade in our school newspaper. I have written short stories periodically throughout my life but seriously started writing about five years ago. I love to write but have trouble finding time between working full-time and being a wife and mom.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The main character of my book is Terra, and she describes herself as the daughter of sci-fi geeks. That would be true of me. My parents raised me watching all kinds of sci-fi shows and movies, but I differ from Terra in that I embrace that part of me and love science fiction and the possibility that there is more out there, and we are not alone. So, Thorne in My Side is Terra's realization that of just this, her world extends beyond the Milky Way. Terra gets to do something that many of us dream of and will never get to do. Terra gets to travel the universe and have the adventure of her life. To get an insight into the life of a teen, I used my experiences as a mom of a teen and pre-teen to try to understand how they would react if something like this were to really happen.
