Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Philadelphia. My grandfather owned a paper recycling company and he would bring us comics in all states of quality. We read everything and I mean everything. Star Wars, X-Men, Archie, anything we could get our hands on. It's such a great experience now to see all of these things so mainstream. "Geek" was a negative label when we were growing up, and now it's such a badge of pride for folks of every generation.

Growing up in the city was an influence, too. My writing tends to gravitate toward more urban areas (real or fiction) because I am so accustomed to being around so many people. I think it's a big part of my personality.
When did you first start writing?
I grew up on comics. I was more of an artist than a writer when I was growing up, but we did a lot of writing as part of our role-playing games and even on bulletin boards online. I think I dabbled for decades but it wasn't until I met with a writing group, a professional editor, and co-author, that I really considered myself a professional.

Anyone can write, and everyone with the passion for it should write. Don't worry about professionalism or how much you can churn out, just take those people, places, things and stories that are yours to tell and get them written. Write! Whenever the mood hits you, just write!
