Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
My family moved a LOT. Strike that, they MOVE a lot. They're still doing it. The usual amount of time in a single location is about two years, and my parents are even figuring they'll retire to an RV so they can just keep moving. It definitely had an impact on me as a writer because I was always reading. It was easier than making friends, so I read everything. This meant that my vocabulary was way beyond most kids my age, and I became addicted to narrative, in any form, and love having a constant input of narrative while I churn out my own.
