Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in New Jersey in a very ethnic neighborhood that was divided between Italians and the Polish. It was very common to have large casual get togethers that would turn into a night to remember or if we missed it, then it was a story to discuss around the kitchen table.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing at an early age. It was an outlet for me and sometimes an escape from the real world that wasn't so pleasant.
