Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on the interstates of America. My parents moved around quite a bit and I had to keep up. Many young people have this kind of experience and I'd like to believe that this makes us "well-rounded" individuals. I've learned how to adapt, fit in, and recreate myself. My writing reflects this. Floating from one genre to another is exciting. Every poem or essay I write may have a general theme, but it's a new chance to recreate myself.
When did you first start writing?
I'd like to say that I was prodigy of some sort, but writing didn't seem feasible to me until I was about sixteen. Writing was something other people did. Smarter people. My interest in movies as a teenager moved me to start writing my own narratives. I wrote a couple of novels that closely followed traditional themes in films, like the kind you'd find in predictable romantic comedies. It seemed easier than I thought it would be. Soon after that I started writing poetry. That turned out to be a lot more challenging. I'm still struggling with poetry but I find it more exciting than novel writing.
