When did you first start writing?
Robin and I both started writing when we were in grade school.

Unforeseen circumstances
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Shaudonna- I read a lot by the time I reached sixth grade I had read most of the books in the school library. The first story that I read that truly had an impact on me was Unlocked by Karen Kingsbury. I was bullied in school so to see such a poignant picture painted about someone else in the same situation hit home. But it was Holden's reaction to the bullies that really impacted me.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
We are old school we prefer to hold a book in our hands
