Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The idea for Undercover Reunion was born on my girlfriend’s back porch in Connecticut a year before our 30th high school reunion.

We were talking about our childhood days when we would play spies and plot against two other classmates, boys of course, and I came up with the idea that we would go to our reunion and find out that U.N.C.L.E. was real and we would be recruited by the organization to bring down another classmate who was now the head of an international criminal organization.

Just like the main characters in the book, she and I were huge fans of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. when we were in the 6th grade. We grew up in a small town, not in Minnesota but upstate New York and there were two boys who were the inspiration for Charles and Eric, who were constantly harassing us in school.

My house had a basement where we had a hidden room and many of the references in the novel; the small town bakery, her having two sons and my moving to California, among other facts were all incorporated into the plot of the story.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the small village of Ellenville, New York in the Catskill Mountains. The post office in First Class Male is based on an actual small town post office which is located about 5 minutes from the original site of Woodstock. The fictional town in Minnesota where Undercover Reunion is located is very much based on my home town. Read the article: Ellenville Always: http://www.ravenwest.net/raven/article/rw_ellenville.htm
