Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
My next project is the third novel in the Bibliophiles series. This time, we learn more about Thaddeus, the computer programmer with the heart of a poet, and Spring, a leftover flower child that owns a juice bar.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I had always written little stories here and there. Actually, I began self-publishing when I was eight. "The Car," with its illustrated cardboard cover, was the gut-wrenching tale of a family who had to sell Betsy, the family automobile. It sold one copy — to my parents.
