Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing, for me, is the opportunity to express my thoughts in a way that is often impossible during daily conversation. I enjoy knowing that what I write remains available long after I have forgotten what I wrote or what I was thinking when I wrote it.
Who are your favorite authors?
Two of my favorite authors are W. Cleon Skousen and John M. Pontius. My short story, Sevenfold, was partially inspired by their works.
