Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
Usually a stream of ideas flow onto a very rough page, which I go back and edit several times. The battle I have is procrastination, and I fight constantly to set aside writing time, and when I do write a story gushes forth usually with little changes to the finished plot. Sometimes I do outlining to try and see ahead in the plot. And several times I have to write out a list of characters, both to remember name spellings as well as go back to put more description into the person created. .
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I have always been a prolific reader. In third grade, the teacher gave a good grade for reading a book and then creating a small book review, with cover and explanation inside. I did at least 50 of those. Later I was drawn into 'swashbuckling' adventures. I read a lot of 'We Were There' series which gave me insight into historical writing, which my books reference. And introspectively, as an only child, I had to use my imagination to create friends and put us into many hero fighting evil scenarios.
