Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I enjoy reading many genres of fiction and plenty of non-fiction. My favorites are urban fantasy, mystery, erotic romance, horror, and science fiction. With non-fiction I prefer biographies or in-depth looks at major historical and modern events that affect the entire world. And I can't pass up a good cook-book to save my life.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Detroit, MI in the 1980's when crime was high. I lived in the same projects the Supremes and Lily Tomlin had once lived in. As a child I knew the streets best, the cops and whores, the bangers and beggars, and early on I realized everyone has an interesting story if you take the time to listen. I learned the seamy side of life is far more interesting than the sunny side of the street and I try to write about stories from the concrete jungle, where life-and-death is just day-to-day.
