Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
I can't work at a coffee shop or with my laptop on my lap in the living room, like some authors, so I have an office, which I also use to plan my lessons and grade papers (I'm a professor at George Washington University) and do my marketing consulting work. I'm very tech savvy, but find I work more efficiently with paper notes, so I keep notebooks with notes about characters, scenes, etc nearby. I also use a big whiteboard I used when I homeschooled my daughters.

However, what office would be complete without pets. Surrounding my desk are my two dogs -- a total of 200 lbs of beasts -- and my cat usually tries to sit on my keyboard to block me from working. I'm constantly tripping over someone when I try to leave the room. I think it's a plot to ensure I keep working.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
As I mention in my bio, I've always been a writer, but I never published a novel until last year. Now, I'm working on my 3rd. The second will be published soon, as I'm nearly finished incorporating edits from my Beta readers.

I grew up in Pittsburgh and now live in DC after spending a long time in deep south Texas. These cities fill my novels with realistic settings and a deep understanding of the people.

Because I've worked in tech most of my life, it's not surprising that my novels deal with the dark web, hacking, and other nefarious plots.
