Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town, Lehigh Acres, Fl until I was 11 years old. It was an all-American kind of town, a sort of Mayberry RFD, where everyone left their doors unlocked and kids could ride their bikes all over town without being worried.
