Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
My favorite children's novel was "Season of the Ponies," by Zilpha Keatley Snyder. My first adult novel I read at 13, "Phantoms," by Dean Koontz. I fell even more deeply in love with the written word. The two novels allowed me to escape into worlds that were vastly different from my own, and I've loved the experience ever since.
How do you approach cover design?
I try to find a notable element from the story and create the cover around it. I think showing too much on the cover, no matter how well done, doesn't always entice readers. It's better to tempt the reader and let them use their imagination, than to rob them of that privilege.
