Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I have a love of learning about new cultures and customs, and the more unusual and misunderstood, the better. I think this stems from having moved around a great deal as a child, including having spent time overseas. Growing up with no real home base, and no consistent cultural norms, and no life-long peer group, I have often felt like an outsider no matter where I go, even in own hometown. I think this is where the attraction to "underdog" cultures, and characters, comes from. I guess I know what it feels like to be misunderstood and kept on the outside.
When did you first start writing?
I have always written. Even as a grade school child I entered poetry in the school literary magazine every year. In college I won my first writing contest for a short poem entitled "Old Servant's Song".
