Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I keep a list of ideas, thoughts and lines in notebooks, the notes app in my phone and have even written on my hand when no other writing material was available. Once I have the seeds of a story, I try interview the character to find out why I should care about them. The actual crafting process is tougher because invariably, the more questions I ask, the more questions that surface. That's when I know both the story and the characters are becoming more three dimensional for me.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I started reading early, and have read voraciously all my life including the classics such as Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights, more historical and gothic romances during my teenage years than I can remember, however, one book that sticks out is a book called Stowaway To The Mushroom Planet. That book was very old when I read it, but the story was wonderfully imaginative. I think that book triggered a life long love of science fiction and fantasy stories.
