Smashwords Interview

Massimo Marino interviewed by Judy Goodwin
Massimo Marino is a scientist and has been writing since he was young.
What drew you to writing? What was the first thing you ever wrote?
I wrote since I’ve been able to hold a pencil in my toddler’s hands. I created stories in my mind, and I wanted to remember them and read them later. My father and older brother received sci-fi magazines and at first I wasn’t allowed to read because I was too young, but I liked the cover pictures, so I invented stories based on those images.The first story I wrote is a bit lost in the fog of old memories but it had to do with a kid who transformed into a dolphin when looking at the full moon seen from a crack on the vault of a seaside cavern.
