Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. It's a very chill place, one of the few parts of the country where even though the landscape is diverse, colors don't matter. It's the Everyplace, to me, and so when I write I often eliminate the importance of WHERE. I like to think that my stories can happen anywhere, any small town or college town or mill town in the country. But I suppose, in doing that, everywhere becomes a bit more like my hometown.
When did you first start writing?
I remember writing stories with my friends in elementary school. We had these fantastic stories where we were all traversing space and saving the universe. It's ironic that I really don't write sci-fi, since that was my first genre, but I guess when you're young you think you can do anything. Now I know I've got limits, and coming up with tech words that sound cool is definitely not one of them.

Seriously writing, though, probably happened when I was in high school. It started with poetry, songs, plays, and then my inspiration for those things ran dry and all of a sudden my prose just took off and it was all I wanted to do.

    Perhaps a bit cliche, but well-written. If I could give one criticism it would be breaking up the paragraphs a bit more because sometimes it's daunting to read so much text in a chunk with erotic literature. But very sexy! -C

    When I began to read this book, it struck me as simple and I thought I would be ultimately disappointed. That impression disappeared quickly as I got sucked up past the simplistic language into the complex web of the plot, the ideas. Beautifully handled, artfully expressed, and honestly just about as fantastic a story of its sort that I've ever seen. I would recommend this to everyone who's ever tried to 'find the answers', which I would say describes quite a lot of us.
