Payne Haynes


Born in 1979, I grew up a world traveller. With a father in the military I lived in Europe and Canada. With these inspirations I began to write from an early age. For me it was a coping mechnisim for the things life threw at me.

As an adult I worked my way across Canada and down into the USA. I continue my travel persuits with a wide vareity of interests from sciences to the arts. Conventions focusing on fiction and literature are my favorite events of the year, and a reason I settled on the west coast.

With years of writing it is time to make the move of sharing it to the world. I sincerely hope it is enjoyed.

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has contributed to my success through its expanded directory. Being picked up on Barnes and Noble's website through smashword has been one of my biggest successes, and one of my leading sellers.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing is my coping mechanism. Life can be hard, and imagination can be an escape. It can be a productive escape that brings hours of entertainment from thinking of it, to writing, to reading. Sometimes when life is too much having a safe escape is all that is needed.
