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.

Then, in 1972, I moved to the big city of Tampa, Fl.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first book in 2004 and it was a huge success. I just wrote a 2nd Edition of The Greatest Sales Book Ever Written and will use 30% of the profit to benefit cancer research.
