Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I don't really have one writing process. Sometimes a story comes to me in the middle of the night and I bang it out in a day. Some stories gestate for months or even years. Sometimes I write an outline and know what will happen next, and other times I am as surprised as the reader.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Most of my e-reading is done on my Kindle. I like that I can travel with it and have so many books taking up so little space, that's important when traveling on a motorcycle!
