Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up all over South and Central Texas. I'm a product of the public schools in places like Killeen, Roma, Laredo, and San Antonio. The time was after World War II and before the sexual revolution.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I'm a bit of a computer geek so I actually have several devices. I personally prefer the comfortable posture of a proper desk and chair with a full sized keyboard and monitor. I have friends who use Nooks, Kindles, and iPads. I own a Samsung Tab A Nook. I use it to verify the epub files that I generate for my self published books. I'm not aware of any particular reason to like one device over another. After I've gone to the trouble to learn how to operate something, I need strong motivation to abandon it and learn how to operate something else for the same purpose. I'm happy for people who enjoy reading with small-screen personal devices. Greasy fingerprints on monitors and on phone screens are among my most powerful dislikes. Hewlett Packard tried to introduce touch screen technology to PCs way back in the 1980s. People wouldn't buy them then. They only became acceptable after Steve Jobs blessed them. I have learned to use touchscreens; but I wash them. Often.
