Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Words and weaving them together to paint a picture that someone can relate to, but mostly learn from.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Walking and exploring new trails with my dog. Riding and caring for my horses. Looking in my garden to see what new vegetable has sprouted. Road trips. Reconnecting with old friends. Making new friends. This is what relaxes me as I spend 85% of my time writing.
