Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in various places. I'm not entirely sure the places influenced my writing as much as the people in my life have. In fact, thinking about it (for the first time ever) it's people who have influenced my writing not places. The people I'm close to and have known forever, they have a definite influence on my writing.
When did you first start writing?
Those who have known me from school days would say I've always written. I didn't start writing seriously until I was in my thirties.
