Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on Shuswap Lake in beautiful B.C. Canada. It's a pristine wilderness with fresh water lakes ( the Shuswap Lake is the largest in BC), 1000 yr old cedar and spruce trees, animals and fish in abundance. The rocks themselves are over 2 billion yrs old. How could you not be inspired by all that beauty? I have seen a change in my life time though. All the mining and logging and thousands of houseboats on the lake every year has had its damaging effects and with the impoverished economy, I'm compelled to write.
When did you first start writing?
I started when I was a young teenager. Hours of playing Dungeons and Dragons taught me all about world building and character building. That's when I fell in love with Fantasy.
