Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Danny and the Dinosaur by Syd Hoff. It featured a life-sized dinosaur statue that comes to life to spend the day playing with a little boy. I wanted to be that boy.
What is your writing process?
I flesh out each main character, understanding them inside and out. I create an environment and situation to put them in. Now, here's the tricky part: I then follow the characters around and write down what they do. In a weird way, my characters write the story, not me.

Also, I drink tons of coffee for focus and clarity.
