Smashwords Interview

What is your reading device of choice, and where do you most enjoy it?
A book, a magazine, a Sunday NYT when I'm in the states, a smart phone when I'm waiting in line, or stuck in traffic, the back of a cereal box, just what IS maltodextrin? -- which sends me to the web, also a favorite device. Where? A hammock, a beach chair under a palapa, a folding chair by a lake, standing in line anywhere, and in bed, but I'll have to read the last couple pages again next day.
Describe your desk
A mess--covered with assorted MS pages; several intriguing rocks, a few beautiful seed pods; a beach photo of my wife (it inspires); many bits of paper, each one holding something urgent, a quote, an idea, a word, to save, or develop, look up; a few old, sepia photos of ancestors, to wonder about, and maybe spark a story; a half dozen sharp #2 Dixons; a laptop with an old-time typewriter click sound; a printer; a glass. A just found hummingbird's nest, a little smaller than a half tennis ball, with some brushed out hair of my cocker spaniel woven among the threads, dried grass, spider silk, feathers, and string. A true thing of beauty.

If you’re lucky, if you were paying attention, the discoveries of childhood stay with you forever. Especially, when you did it best—watching, listening, taking risks, out on your own, with no one to hold your hand. Ten-year-old Dan spends three days all but alone, a greenhorn from the moment he leaves a dark path for the blinding sunlit waters of a lake. His story is a child’s story for us all.
