Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Miami, Florida, which exposed me to a variety of cultures and helped fuel my imagination.

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I am new to Smashwords, but they have given me the opportunity to follow my dreams.

I love the escape from reality it provides and because of some limitations I have with my MS, it allows me to experience adventures I otherwise could not.
