Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born and raised in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Though my husband and I have moved all over the country during our time together, I've always been a Midwestern girl at heart. Being from the center of the country has definitely colored my writing. There's a whole different pace in the middle of the country than you'll find on either the East or West coasts...a completely different set of values. My values are represented in my writing. I believe in neighbor helping neighbor and in doing the right thing, even when it's hard to do. I like strong men and competent women. I believe men should act like men and women can be strong and soft at the same time. I believe in hard work and creating my own success, and I take pride in each small victory. I like to think each of my characters reflects those qualities too. Another thing readers might not know about my writing, I base most of my stories in Indiana, just because I can!
When did you first start writing?
I can remember writing my first poetry in high school and having the teacher read it to the class because he thought it was really good. Looking back on it now I realize how dark and filled with teenage angst those first writing attempts were. I shudder at all that angst now. I’ve graduated to more physical writing since then. I’m really more of a blow ‘em up and smack ‘em around type of writer. It’s so much more satisfying than just sitting around fretting about something.
