Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
They are my lifeblood!

It's easy to fall inwards, sometimes; to draw my world ever closer and tighter around me. And it's ... been really amazing, and really helpful in fighting that, to know that sometimes people in random places all over the world like the little thoughts I have thought and the words I have put in order. ^_^

I don't really have much of a choice but to be a writer---it is a thing that was practically coded into me, seeded and grown into me while I was growing, that twined about the pieces of me as I grew up like the vines of some notional plant, and now I think if I ripped it out of me I would lose my nervous system and my bones.

So, since I'm stuck writing this stuff anyway, I feel really lucky and happy that there are people out there who can get pleasure out of it and put it to some use!
