Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story to ever hit my typewriter (yes, typewriter - obviously back in the stone age) was about a young man and his sister who were trying to overcome the obstacles of budding adulthood that lay in their paths. This was both humorous and poignant in that it showed so many different aspects of a complicated issue.
Describe your desk
My desk is an iPad. Back in the days of the dinosaurs I had an old portable manual typewriter placed on whatever flat surface wherever I happened to be working at the time. The tablet eliminates the clutter that might otherwise be scattered about, seeing as how I am anything but organized.
