Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Because of family moves, I attended nine different schools, mostly in the western United States. Though I've always been a mildly introverted person, being the perpetual new kid turned me into someone painfully shy. Since I often felt alone, I turned to books, both reading and writing.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first book at the age of eight, and have been hooked ever since.
