Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on a ranch in Southern California, before moving to the Midwest. Living in remote areas most of my life garnered a pretty vivid imagination, along with being an avid fiction reader. I think that most of my writing comes from a combination of truth and fiction, hopefully combined to keep the readers' interest, and perhaps give them something to think about as well. I also use a lot of my life experiences in my writing, mixed of course with equal doses of fact and fiction. The challenge to the reader is to figure out which part is fact and which part is truly fiction.
When did you first start writing?
I first began writing songs and poetry when I was twelve years old. My father, after I had been begging for quite sometime, bought me a wonderful $20.00 Sears and Roebuck guitar for Christmas, and I would spend hours upon hours up in the dormer window of my bedroom, listening to certain albums repeatedly, and teaching myself the chords and music by ear. From there I would create my own music and songs. In the seventh grade I had the most fantastic English teacher; Mr. Sharp, who introduced us to the "classics" Edgar Allan Poe, Longfellow, Cooleridge, Shelley, and tons of others. He taught us a lot in our Creative Writing classes, and I honestly think that is what inspired me to become an author.
