D. J. Humphries

Biography

I have been writing fiction stories for about as long as I have been able to hold a pen/pencil. My story files grew as I got my own computers, and I have carried them with me from one computer to another throughout the years. Despite my best attempts, I am always drawn back to the fantasy genre and find that I best understand my characters for those stories; I enjoy their travels and seeing where they take me probably as much as my readers will.

Born and raised in the Metro Atlanta, Georgia area, I have been exposed to the Southern (U.S.) culture throughout my life. However, a recent move to Indiana has opened up my experiences even more and I have greatly loved the midwestern culture I have been experiencing! Writing (and reading) has always allowed me to explore other cultures, other worlds, and other lifestyles. My love of travel has not been fully realized, but I intend to use it to further my worldview and bring my readers even more fantastic stories!

Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I must say that this really depends on where I am when I start the book! I have the Nook app and Kindle app installed on all of my devices which range from an iPhone, to an iPad, to a 2nd generation Kindle, to a Nook. Whichever device I happen to be using when I grab the ebook is what I will probably finish reading it on! But to me, I would still prefer to stop and spend a day reading a physical book.
Describe your desk
My desk is more a mental space than a physical one! I do most of my writing on my laptop, which is easily transferred to wherever I feel like writing at the time, or if an idea strikes while I'm out and about, I'll use apps on my cell phone to get the idea added into the story and edit it when I get back to my computer. In all reality, a lot of my writing takes place while sitting on my comfortable sofa with a movie playing in the background and a cup of coffee or tea beside me.
