Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Sure, I was a little kid and wrote a picture book about a sea battle during the Revolutionary War. If I saw that advertised today, I'd never read it, but then it was an intriguing time of history for me, along with medieval knights in shining armor.
What is your writing process?
Something will strike me as worthy of a story and I will write an initial chapter. I say "initial chapter" since the first one I write isn't necessarily going to be Chapter 1 of the final book. I will write chapters 1, 7, 11 and 22, then fill the gaps. I've read some warnings against this from other writers, but it works for me.
