Interview with D. E. Harrison

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have studied in the Sugetsu School of Ikebana of Japan, in which I hold a first level certificate. I take the Ikebana and convert it into a Marquetry art presentation. I have exhibited my Marquetry art in many museums across the country. They have included more than just Ikebana presentations.
I am board member of the American Marquetry Society. When not writing I am creating Marquetry pictures which vary in size from 4 by 4 inches to 24 by 24 inches. They are all intended to hang on the walls.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a PC. The phone is nailed to the wall with a short cord. The PC is used as a word processer.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing the last page and finally knowing how it all ended. Up to this point I seldom have any idea how it might end.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
They have forced me to clean up my books. Usually after the last page in written, I move on.
What is your writing process?
If the Seattle detective I place them in a real life situation and watch them dig it out. Such as a barking dog, everyone has had one of them around. Where will this lead them? I have no idea until I write the last page.
What do you read for pleasure?
Math books or science books with the math behind what they are doing.
