Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
LOL, this is funny. When I was about ten years old, some friends came to visit. We sat around for a little while, wondering what we could do to amuse ourselves. Someone mentioned we act out like a TV show and since I was an avid reader of Nancy Drew and Donna Parker, I volunteered to write our "skit". It was probably all of 5 or 6 pages and I titled it Midnight Horror... but we had to end at 8 p.m. (school the next day, you know!) and the amateurish writing was pretty much of a horror too.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
No, I can't remember the first one I read, but I do recall at being at only maybe 4 or 5 when my mother told the stories of Goldilocks and the three bears. What fun!

Smashwords book reviews by Miss Mae

  • A Confederate Yankee In Miss Annabelle's Court on Nov. 06, 2010

    I don't read much time travel, so I wasn't sure what to expect with this one. Let me just say, the danger was so imminent and I got so concerned for the hero, I sat here with toes curled, wondering if he would wind up with the heroine! Well, I'm not about to give anything away. :) Read this absorbing, tender --yet tense-- love story for yourself. Wonderful descriptions!
  • Dancing With Fate on April 24, 2011

    Beautifully written with highly visual scenes, you'll be transported to a world unlike any other. I urge everyone to read this story and learn the "fate" of a well-known character who you'll never imagine in any other way again!
  • Munch Ado About Nothing on Aug. 14, 2011

    What an incredible tale! Such originality and creativity! I laughed and chuckled all the way through this as I munched on my corn flakes....er, hey, there's only half a box! Who's been eating my cereal????
