Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Manhattan and lived throughout the tri-state area until I was 17, when I moved to Miami, FL in October of my senior year of high school! I think it's fair to say that the environment where one spends formative years impacts their experiences and their cultural exposure, which presumably impacts everything else, including their writing.
When did you first start writing?
My earliest recollection of something specific was for an 8th grade English assignment, and it was essentially a short fictional piece that I plagiarized from a Marvel Comic. I still feel guilty about it. Throughout high school I carried a spiral notebook around where I wrote poetry and song lyrics.
