Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing short stories in high school.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Bamberg county in South Carolina and I read a lot of books since we had 3 fuzzy channels on a very small black and white TV and we didn't belong to the country club. I read a lot of very old books like The Bobbsey Twins series.
