Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Parrottsville, Tennessee. Pretty much all my life has been spent here, except for infant years in Florida and New Jersey. This had both good and bad things influence me. Mainly from growing up in such a rural, Southern-oriented place had pushed me to embrace technology and science fiction like its nobody's business, resulting in being a fan of things such as foreign entertainment and "Dawnstar" being produced."

On the flip side, the rural setting makes me entertain Westerns now and then, giving me a good background to write things such as my Heather blog serial, the Janus Fairytale project and other settings that have an older fantasy feel to it.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was about 13 years old. Started out on loose binder filler sheets, but it wasn't anything really serious. I started seriously writing in 2008 upon owning my first current-era computer, giving me the tool to write significantly more.
