Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started keeping a journal after First Grade, when my family moved to Europe. I earned writing awards during elementary school, and got a story published in my high school's literary magazine. For years I had several ideas for screenplays bouncing around in my head, and filled notebooks with story fragments, until I went back to college and took a Screen Writing class. The teacher suggested taking the College Newspaper class as a way to get into the habit of completing articles on a deadline. It worked, and seeing my name in print became addicting. The Journalism instructor also taught a Magazine Writing class which was immensely helpful transitioning into professional article writing.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Thinking about writing. Sometimes I talk to people about what I am writing, and where they can read it. But even when I'm talking to people, I keep my pen and notebook handy in case I need to write something.
