When did you first start writing?
Pretty much since about the time I was old enough to pick up a writing utensil and spell my name.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
My first story I wrote when I was five. It was a silly little escapist piece of my adult self driving KITT, the car from "Knight Rider." Obviously, I didn't know then that this style of writing was called fanfiction. When you think about it, it's no surprise that I cut my writing teeth on fanfiction in addition to penning my original poetry.
