Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes. I was four years old. The story was a about a man who literally lost his head. One morning, he woke up to find his head was gone.He searched everywhere, beginning with his garden. It was not there, so he pulled a carrot from the earth and positioned it on his neck and then continued his fruitless search. Eventually, he replaces the carrot with one unlikely thing after another. In the end, he crafts a wooden head and manages to make it look a little like the original. I remember my amazement.
How do you approach cover design?
I start with a single, compelling atmospheric detail. I associated my memoir with mystery and secrecy. The font on the cover was also important--I wanted it to look curvy and fun. I then scoured the internet looking for just the right images. Then I took my selections to the graphic artist, Jill Blackwell. We met at a coffee bar to discuss the cover and a couple hours later, Jill had several possibilities in mind. A week later, she presented a fewl sketches, and I chose the one I liked best. We went from there.
