Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in north Mississippi, a stone's throw away (about 20 miles) from the home of William Faulkner (whom my family was remotely related to, by marriage). This nearby town was also the home of John Grisham when he first became published. Mississippi has had so many wonderful, dynamic writers, and it feels as if I am surrounded by this positive writing energy from these powerhouses of the written word!
When did you first start writing?
I was actually writing in grade school. I wrote a lot of poems, early on, and by the third grade I was writing stories. By the time I was in the fifth grade, I knew that I wanted to write for a living.

This is a short, funny book describing my summer trip to Italy. From the flower covered balconies in the cities, the ancient structures layered with centuries of human experience, to the thrill of meeting new people and becoming a world traveler, Italy was a blast. Oh yes, let’s not forget the naked statues. Not to mention an abundance of real, live, very hot looking Italians! What a vacation!
