Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up primarily in Montana with summers and some school years in Minnesota. The winters are cold and the summers are hot, so I spent a lot of time with my nose in books. I wrote off and on throughout childhood and more seriously by the end of junior high school, and I think the love of literature made it easier to craft words of my own.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Ah, just one? I'm happy when I'm writing or working on story ideas. Regardless of mood, there's a deep happiness that comes from putting words down. I'd have to say the greatest joy, however, is when characters surprise me or plot twists appear from my fingers before I realize it's happened.
