Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I am working on the third book of my Trilogy, for Blue Planets. Hidden Planet, is the second book, which is finished, soon to be made into an e-book, and Noah, Lost and Found, is the third book of the Trilogy, still a work in progress.
When did you first start writing?
My writing career started after I confided in my daughter about these ideas in my head. I had turned 77 years old. She told me to go for it, put those ideas on paper. My handwriting was hard to read so my wife bought me a computer. To this day it has never been hooked up to the internet. My daughter joined me as co-author, by adding the details that make an interesting read. She had authored, Dove and Cooper, so had the experience to guide me.
