Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
In Rochester New York. I lived in bad neighborhoods, drugs and violence were everyday things. For two years, between fourteen and sixteen, before I went into the service, I lived on the streets. It taught me a great deal about how life really is and how we very often keep ourselves oppressed and poor.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing at about thirteen. When I was eighteen I wrote my first novel length manuscript. It became something like an addiction after that. I can normally write a 75 k novel in about ten days. Not perfect, of course, but complete. I currently have more than 30 novels that are unpublished, as well as short stories, lyrics and plays. I took my first creative writing class in 1982. I published my first novel in 1985.

Smashwords book reviews by independAntwriters Publishing

  • Flint of Dreams on Sep. 02, 2018

    I purchased this book because I wrote something similar and I wanted to see how another author would handle the material. It, I feel, is difficult to tell a story with ties to the past, yet set in the world of now; Flint of Dreams accomplishes that. The characters are strong. The drama and action come on quickly and Charles Peterson Sheppard holds throughout the book, telling a tale that lets you into a world you may have wondered about. Flint, Chase, Crystine, I love the characters and enjoyed this book completely. I'm looking for more from this author.
