Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
It's a behemoth, oak, roll-top desk that's nearly as tall as me, retrofitted for my computer. The cubbyholes are stuffed with slips of paper-- some are ideas for other books, some notes for upcoming chapters. Post-its flower the interior reminding me of deadlines for getting items to my editor. A one-eyed pirate skull sits atop a pile of books on the very top of it next to my printer. There's an assortment of knick-knacks from Scotland, the U.K. and Canada -- homes of my ancestors. A heavy, marble-encased compass rests on the note books that I outline chapters in. Four pens lay on the main writing surface so when I have to jot things down or doodle diagrams about how some action is going to work, I can. There are 12 drawers on the top of the desk, some the size of index-cards, filled with writing utensils; pens, paper, note cards, tacks, paperclips, etc. The lower draws are filled with files, more notebooks, and other supplies. Believe it or not, it keeps me highly organized.
When did you first start writing?
Like most kids, I made up stories in my head, sharing them with anyone who would listen and even those who wouldn't. I remember one occasion when I was very young, telling my grandfather a tall-tale that I'd made up about a monkey taking off with my baby doll, climbing up in the pecan tree -- and feeling very pleased that he'd sat completely still during the telling of it. Later, when he began snoring -- I realized he probably had not heard every word. From the sound of his resounding Z's he probably missed more than a few. Did that make him my first critic?
I was eight years old when I actually remember writing one down.
My mother had many health issues when I was growing up and was in and out of the hospital. During one of these many absences I was brimming with energy and a desire to share another story with her. Instead of drawing a get-well card, I wrote down the story with my crayons on construction paper. And thus my writing career began.
Needless to say it was probably time well spent.
While some of my childhood artwork was good enough for display on the fridge, I doubt anyone would have been interested in downloading my image of an oak tree drawn with purple and pink crayons.
