Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
As early as I can remember. I recall writing stories and poems as a child, and always kept a notebook. As an adult, my confidence in my dreams went by the wayside thanks to the "real world," but I started up again, and wrote my first full-length novel when I was 25-26 years old.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Currently, I am working on the third book in the Earth and Sky saga, which is tentatively titled Darkness and Light. I love the world of Earth and Sky, and I feel I could spend forever writing about the assorted supporting characters. I always envisioned that I would write more about Marshall and Ibbe, about Wren and Ville's parents, or about Cai and Bahatti... but while I was writing book 2, I stumbled across a new character completely by accident. He kind of took over and became book 3. Darkness and Light is about the struggle of being flawed in a seemingly perfect world. Or, in the case of the main character, being faced with the fact that you are not as perfect and infallible as the world around you seems to think--and that sometimes you may fail the ones you love. There is also a bit more focus on the redemptive qualities in people, and on accepting yourself as you are in the face of adversity.
