Smashwords Interview

Do you listen to music while you write?
I love music. My default is some combination of delta blues, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Rolling Stones, folk, and bluegrass. Music is a huge part of what inspires me to write, but I can't listen to music while I'm writing. I wish I could! Alas, it's too distracting. But it's great for brainstorming and daydreaming. Music and a long drive are all I need to get the creative juices flowing.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in rural Florida, which is evident in most of my stories. I tend to focus on rural people, especially people without a lot of money, Southern culture, and wild natural areas like the ones I grew up around.
