Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born and raised in Detroit, MI. Other than a trip to Toledo Ohio(which is less than an hour away) to visit relatives and a couple of trips "up north" to the woods, I never left the Detroit area until I was in my twenties. I was born in 1957 and raised in 1960's/1970's Detroit Michigan. That pretty much says it all doesn't it. The stage that's been set does not influence my writing at all. I play my part but I write from a place above the stage.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing in the 1980's. I used to read Writer's Digest and enter the poetry contest from the little square ads in the back of the magazine. I was interested in being published and on the shelves at the big bookstores. I was always good at love letters and journals, just expressing myself on paper. At that time, I knew I had a special connection to "God". I didn't know exactly what the connection was but I knew it was special and different than the churchy type stuff.
