Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read by myself, I believe was The Foot Book (Dr. Seuss). I was so enthralled that I could read the whole thing, that's all I did for a while.
How do you approach cover design?
I like to scale down the story to its most condensed form. It's tricky conveying genre, tone, plot, and character in a single image.

    Light, short mystery. Kind of tried too hard to be funny in places. The stargazing toward the end took me out of the story a bit.
