Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
It’s an absolute mess! Who ever said engineers are tidy people, clearly never met me. I have stacks of papers and CDs all over the place, and endless amounts of post-it notes and photos covering the walls. But even in its most chaotic state, I know exactly where everything is.
When did you first start writing?
I’m an engineer by profession; so much of my life has been technical writing which isn’t exactly thrilling. In school, I felt that forced writing prompts were a pain and took valuable time away from subjects I actually enjoyed like math and science. It wasn’t until much later in life that I came to discover the freeing nature of writing. I love the creative process now and try to write every day.
