Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on a small family farm. As the youngest in the family with few playmates my own age, I had to use my imagination to entertain myself. My father had an old 1920s model typewriter. Around age eight, I began typing stories about the family dogs on that old typewriter. I would take a sheet of legal-sized paper and draw it off into columns like the newspaper. As fate would have it, I spent 21 years of my adult life working at my hometown newspaper.
When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?
In ninth grade. My creative writing teacher that year was a great influence and encouraged me to never stop writing. I also had a best friend who loved writing, and we would write stories together. In high school, I contributed to the school's literary magazine. As a project for my journalism class, I contributed to a column about school affairs for our hometown newspaper. By this time, I knew that becoming a writer was my dream and only ambition.
