Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing is when I make a connection with a reader. It often happens in unexpected ways.

For instance, one woman wrote me to tell me that her husband was a soldier with PTSD, and that "Prince of Bryanae" really resonated with the two of them. That really made my day, week, ... year. Another reader told me that Willow's brutal past reminded her of her own terrible experiences and that she found the book moving.

Then there are the ladies out there who tell me they've fallen in love with D'Arbignal! Can you think of a greater compliment?
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend a lot of my life at work at Google, writing software. Then there's the home life with my girlfriend Kate and my 32,352 cats. Any remaining free time is spent training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or Muay Thai.
