Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
i grew up most of my life in Southern California. The weather, the scenery, the people, and so much more definitely helped inspire my writing style. The cover of one of my three books "Keep Joy in a Pocket & Love in a Heart Locket" is a picture of palms trees I took while rollerblading down at the beach.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was a little girl in elementary school. My very first book was called "The First Pizza" and I had even created a binding and drew pictures. It was about a little girl who was very hungry and wanted to make herself something to eat. Within minutes she became the inventor of the first pizza. She was very gifted, lol.
