Interview with Bruce Dinsman

Describe your desk
Laptop on a lap desk mostly. I have a lot of reference material and background stuff in a green metal box beside my chair,
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Las Vegas Nevada and left for the US Navy before I even graduated from High School. I think all of us have interesting life experiences that shape our world and literary view.
When did you first start writing?
I tried to write my first story in 1982 when I went through a heart wrenching divorce. I went home from my duty station in Washington and found a friend from high school who was also going through a bad time in personal relationships and invited her to join me in Washington if she needed to get away. That was 33 years ago this summer and that dear lady has been my wife ever since.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Jury is still out on this one. I made $1.64 in ten years from my first story on smashwords.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I think like many writers it is the catharsis that draws us to write down what burdens us so much.
What do your fans mean to you?
What fans?
What are you working on next?
Just finished a one year Bible planner, working on some other Christian fiction ideas
Who are your favorite authors?
Tolkein, Ursula LeGuin, CS Lewis, Paolini, Irving Jensen
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
God kept me through the night, so He must have something for me to do.
