Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
My parents were born and raised in the south. I too, was born there but at the age of six, we moved to Oregon. I grew up in Central and Eastern Oregon with strong western influences (living on a ranch in the desert seems to have a lasting effect) but still managed to hang on to my southern roots as well. Not only has this cultural combination contributed to my overall outlook on life, it specifically has influenced my writing, in both style and content. My perspective on many issues comes through in my books and most of the time can be easily traced to my southern and western ties.
When did you first start writing?
I began writing around age 14. Writing was much more interesting than school work! I started by writing songs (absolutely horrible songs - but I eventually improved) and then a few articles. Finally, at about age thirty, I graduated to books.
