Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Eight years ago I accidentally wrote my first book. I had no clue what I was doing. After a run of reading many terrible books in a row, I had an idea of my own... an image in my head. I sat down and started typing. 15k words into it, I realized I was writing a book. I finished that book and I've been writing ever since. I couldn't stop now if I wanted to!
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on a sailboat. That did something odd to my imagination, I think. There is a certain type of surreal serenity that comes with living aboard a boat. That undercurrent seems to run through all my books, even though most of my characters have far more conventional backgrounds. Growing up on a boat helped teach me a stable world evolves not from your environment as much as from your perspective. My books are full of strange worlds and even stranger people, but all my main characters seem to have that grip on reality despite being dropped in the heart of chaos.
