Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing in the early 1980's. I had a story in mind and wanted to put it down on paper. It wasn't until 2013 that I thought I would want to publish my stories. I spent the next several years rewriting and rewriting my stories. Demon War is the first book I attempted to publish. So, writing has been my passion for several years.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Operation Phoenix Book 1: We're Not Alone comes from my interest in what would happen, if earth was destroyed and mankind had to find another place to live. The question is: would it be another place found on earth? Or would it be in outer space? How would we survive, if it were in outer space? We don't have the technology to do it, do we? What if we met up with aliens and found We're Not Alone? Read the series and find out.
