Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
One of my favorite authors was Robert B. Parker. He wrote the Spenser novels. I continually reread them and to me, that's evidence of great writing.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
My professional paid work is in the IT field. That occupies most of the work week. After that, I like the martial arts, so some of my time is spent doing that. Aikido, kenjutsu, kali are some of the arts that I study.
