As much as I feel I have to pinch myself to believe it's true now and again, it really is.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in New England, an area where as Don Henley so succinctly put it "where old world shadows hang heavy in the air". New England in the 60's and 70's often had a buttoned-up and puritanical way of looking at things - at least in my family. This influenced my writing from the perspective of wanting to be free to express myself without judgement, and trying to keep outside the box I was brought up in. Most of my family has passed away, and I can only image what they are thinking about this book, as they watch over me from the other side. Do it now - ask forgiveness later is how I have chosen to look at it.
Why are you doing this interview when you hate the idea?
Maybe I'm wrong to hate it. Maybe they work. Despite my ongoing, constant antagonistic sense of humor, I'm deathly serious about writing. I'm not so sure about death.
How is it you're not so sure about death?
I've actually barely applied any thought to death. I used to think we stopped and went into endless, dreamless sleep. I rarely dream, and I don't remember having a dream until I was about 20. It was a nightmare. I hanged an old woman over a shower curtain rod, and as she hung there her eyes opened. For the longest time I thought that woman represented my mother, but I have no deep seated issues with her. She was a bit on the stoic side and un-affectionate, but she had a warm, friendly demeanor and would do anything for me. I've come to think that old lady represented the ghost of Ayn Rand out to get me. This was long before I even heard of Ayn Rand, so that probably sounds nutty.

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing, I'm usually drawing or reading - both fiction and manga. Also, playing outside with my dog and my niece. I do like to play games every once in a while as well. Specifically, mmorpgs.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Well, I read most stories on fan-fiction sites, to be honest. I do love to read e-books as well, usually finding them on Google Books.
Nunca pensé en ello, siempre he escrito por satisfacción propia.
¿En qué estás trabajando ahora?
Escribo esporádicamente, la segunda parte de la novela “Reencuentro en Veracruz” por circunstancias de salud ha llevado su tiempo y ha sido una escritura pausada. Leía, pintaba y escribía con regularidad pero de nuevo me encuentro con ánimo de retomar cada una de esas aficiones. Dejé mucho tiempo sin escribir y esta segunda parte la inicié ya hace tres años. Por tanto, espero que muy pronto la llegue a publicar.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I remember reading was Michael Morpurgos Kensuke's Kingdom. I had to read it at school from the school library and I remember that I didn't want to put it down till I had finished the entire book.
Interestingly, I never considered I'd be a writer. As a child I loved to read (I devoured romance novels from the moment I discovered them), but it NEVER occurred to me that I could write one myself. My first book came to me in a dream (so cliché, right?). But it was an idea that wouldn't go away so I thought, maybe I could…
What's the story behind your latest book?
That very dream that started my writing journey! It was a beautiful dream — there were moving scenes of a boy who never came of age like every one of his kind has. It was a dream about a girl who has wounds of her own (and totally underestimates her potential) and their instantaneous connection. A connection powerful enough to spark Noah's change, and to challenge Eden's beliefs. It had to be written, which meant I had to go learn how to write…
