Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes, at around ten years of age, I won a school prize in primary school, a children's novel about a child on holiday by the seaside that finds a cave full of pirate treasure. I can't remember what it was called or who wrote it but I clearly remember working out the plot and how it was written. Far as I remember I thought it was pretty corny and began to write stories to see what I could think of, the book inspired me to create.
How do you approach cover design?
From the basis of plot and what I have available to reflect content. My daughter is a capable artist in oils and she did some early covers for me, the connection between my daughters cover at the face of my work made it far more special. I have of late in a series book used the same prop at the centre with reflective support surrounding the main prop, I have been able to achieve this myself.
