Smashwords Interview

How do you generate your ideas?
My books seem to find me and then cry to be written. Some ideas come in dreams and others by deep impressions. Others come simply based on something that interests me. I work on some of my books with reluctance, perhaps because of the topic or the difficulty of adequately wording the deep concepts and ideas involved. But in the end I am always glad for the journey.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town in Southern Idaho. Because we had no satellite or cable, and we only had one TV channel, I did a lot of reading.

Many people wrongly feel they should be 'tolerant' of gay marriage and not oppose it, even though it is not something they would do personally. This book explains the falsity of this notion.

Their goal with gay marriage is to proactively compel acceptance of gayness as normal.
