Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I love reading things on my Android and use CoolReader. I'm not a techie, so I tend to make things as simple as possible. Which, I guess is pretty funny considering I used to be a network administrator for General Electric and the Marketing Director for an ISP during the beginning of the DotCom (or Dot Bomb, as I like to call it) Start Up phase in the mid-90s.
Describe your desk
I have a roll-top desk with a space for my laptop. It sits in a nook just off my kitchen with red walls and a window that looks out over magenta azaleas and wisteria in the spring; wild roses, cosmos and calla lilies in the summer and a beautiful hedge row of swedish ivy and this lovely bush with green and red leaves in the fall. on the left in little cubby holes are bills and things for our house, but on the right the cubby holes are filled with pieces of paper scribbled with story ideas, folders packed with ghost stories for a book on Ghosts of Northern Kentucky I've been working on for six years, photographs that spur story ideas and correspondence that holds the beginning of conversations in an as yet unwritten murder mystery.
