Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
If I'm not writing, I'm probably outside working on a project, which might include wood work, gardening or something for my chickens. I am caregiver for my husband, so I take him to doctor appointments. I go to craft shows with my books and help promote other authors as founder of ProActive Writer's Group. I stay busy. =o)
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I wrote was "That Special Summer" and had it bound for my son at Christmas. I think that was 1984.
