How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I search by author or by topic. I like certain authors and I also like certain topics. Occasionally, I read samplings from best sellers in various topics, just to see what's popular.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It was in the 7th grade. It was called: Me and My Daisy BB Gun. It was based on a true experience. No, I did not shoot my eye out. It was a two-page weekend homework assignment and it made it into a national middle-school publication called: Who's Who.
