Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I began writing as a teen and I've studied the craft of writing ever since. But it was only recently that fiction writing came into sharp focus. Prior to that I was writing poetry off and on. And I've been writing instructions for others for years to pay the bills.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was a short story. It was supposed to be a myth but I was in way over my head and it didn't come out too well. But from that I learned a few lessons, such as write what you know, and don't take on too much at once.
