Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It had to have been "What I Did On My Summer Vacation" or some other homework assignment. I know it took me quite some time before I wrote a story that I was truly passionate about. But that passion came out as a short story that I wrotte in college called: "Mahoney and the Indian." I still have it.
What is your writing process?
I can't type to save my life so all my writing is longhand. I put my ideas on small spiral notepads that I carry in my back pocket. I found out that I am most productive while riding on a crowded subway car, especially if it's during the morning rush.

A cascade of death sweeps through a small town, and a quaint funeral home is at the center of the problem—but it’s not about the dead people there—it’s that some of them aren’t exactly dead. Fifteen-year-old Peter Livingston lives in the funeral home, but he doesn’t know about its gruesome connection to a maxium-security prison where some of the inmates are not exactly alive.
