Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
I work in what my wife, Elizabeth, calls "my pod." It's a multi-level computer desk facing a large drawing table. It's in a corner with a big desk chair and closed in by a low bookshelf unit. Everything is within easy reach.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Nashville and grew up in middle Tennessee. I don't necessarily believe where I lived was a factor in my writing but rather how I was raised. I couldn't have asked for a better childhood with parents who I knew loved me and encouraged my creativity. Every child should be so loved.
