Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the Midwest, unfortunately suffering from all of the allergy and sinus ailments afflicting those who live at the mercy of the ever unpredictable weather Jet Stream. The area in which I grew up could see temperature changes of 70 degrees within a few hours. Sunny and warm in the morning, snowy and cold in evening. This is the curse of living in the Midwest. Even so, I considered myself blessed to be able to enjoy all four seasons, fall being my favorite.

I primarily write and publish non-fiction which is influenced solely by my experiences or the experiences of others with whom I have relationships. The Midwest is a place where generations are born, live and die. Many never leave the Midwest. It is also a place that does not see a lot of migration from other areas of the country or world. People who migrate to the Midwest from other areas typically do so due to employment. It is usually not due to marriage as Midwesterner's usually stay in their hometown and marry other Midwesterners. I, myself, grew up my entire life in the same home. This fact about the Midwest makes for some interesting dynamics as it allows for building trustworthy relationships. Trust builds intimacy and intimacy leads to sharing. People become vulnerable when they trust you and allow you to see inside their soul. To learn about who they are. When I see someone I don't know, I always ask myself, "What is their story?" No matter what their story, I'm interested, not out of some morbid curiosity, but because their story is different from mine. Hearing other people's stories leads to tremendous personal growth for any human being.

The Midwest has no mountains, no beaches and no impressive scenery. It has corn and a muddy river...and people. People rich in history and mystery. The people are the scenery that inspires the artists of the Midwest.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing in elementary school, 5th grade.
