Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was in third grade in 1968, a time when the Apollo Moon program was a major item the Swedish news. The teacher gave us the assignment to write a story about a trip and I wrote a piece in which I stowed away on the first moon lander. This was before Apollo 11 but after Apollo 8.

The first time I tried to write a novel was in 1973-74, when I wanted to do a pastiche on "Prisoner of Zenda". I penciled the story in the blue-covered notebooks that were common among school children in those days. No, I never finished the tale, but somewhere in a crate at home, the notebooks are still around together with a few handmade maps relating to the hero's adventure.
What is your writing process?
I look for a quiet place with a comfortable chair, make sure that I have some strong coffee available and then I start typing.
