Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina as the youngest of five kids in a big, crazy family. I was a good deal younger (seven and a half years) than my closest sibling, so spent most of my time around "old people." This meant I often acted and spoke like I was older than my age. It also meant I had lots of creative time alone. I had a great imagination and would make up stories and plays. Then I would corral the neighborhood children to come be actors in my productions. I always starred and directed, of course. :)
When did you first start writing?
At my big sister's encouragement, I wrote my first poem at age six. She was a teenager then and way into poetry. I continued to have a fascination with poetry and the rhythm of words into my own teenage years. That's when I started writing more in earnest. I had a few things published in the high school newspaper, and was named the unofficial "poet laureate" of my high school. Unofficial, because there was really no such title. My headmaster bestowed it on me because he'd read and believed in my writing, and had encouraged me at age fourteen to one day pursue a writing career.
