Smashwords Interview

Welcome Peter. I've read the Dark Pilgrim Series and found it a fascinating read. How many books do you currently have available on Smashbooks?
Thanks for the complement. I'm glad you enjoyed reading my books. I currently have nine books available through Smashwords. Six in one series called Dark Pilgrim, with which you are already familiar, two in a series called the Sslithax Heresy, and one stand alone called Eternity's Handmaiden.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote, and the impact it had on you?
I wrote a short story when I was in sixth grade, about the time that Star Wars came out (now I'm dating myself). I used old paper from my dad's store advertising a Christmas special. It was green. I even self-illustrated it. Needless to say, it was a shameful rip-off of Star Wars, but I was only 12. But everyone I showed it to told me that they liked it, especially this one friend of my dad's and that was the catalyst for me to want to write more. I still show all my work that that friend of my dad. Amazingly, he still likes it all.
