Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I spent a lot of my early life leap-frogging from one place to another, but mainly resided in Western North America. I have fond memories of an early childhood in California and Nevada (USA) and except for a couple years in Northern BC I spent my early teens and young adult life up in the south-central region of BC, Canada - with a short stint in the Arctic Circle. My business partner, co-writer and husband Dave was born and raised in Kelowna (BC) where he caught me in 1990 and we have been together ever since. Dave and I have collaborated their efforts and have authored of 5 books (to date, 2013), with another book of poetry coming out in early 2014, followed by a 7th book due for release in late 2014.
When did you first start writing?
I first got the writing bug back in my youth when I used writing as a release tool for the childhood trauma and unstable life. Through writing I was able to find answers to my many questions, purge emotions, express the things I witnessed. Later in 1999 I decided to take writing seriously as a career - this was sparked by a career interruption and then taking many career courses and personality tests, which revealed a tendency toward writing as a career. Memories came alive at that point of awards and recognitions and poetry or short story publications in my youth... so this is what sparked the journey into writing professionally.
