Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a very small town in the smallest state of Australia. It was so small, there were more cows than people. As a child, I was often bored with the lack of entertainment around town, so I usually turned to my imagination. People always told me that I looked like I was in a world of my own, but they didn't realize I actually was!
When did you first start writing?
I started writing from a really young age, I was no older than 8 years old. It started as a class project, we were supposed to write a children's story that we would like to read ourselves. I got really into it, I spent a long time on my characters. The protagonist was a frog. Now that I think about it, it's not a surprise that I ended up writing the genre I write, because even in that story, the frog faked his own death. I think I got a good grade for my work, but also a concerned letter from the teacher to my parents.
