Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I've just released a short story, about 7000 words or so. It's a fairly simple story about a guy that has a car accident and afterward he feels like he can see into the future. He can't see the future all the time, but in short flashes of a few minutes. He strikes upon the idea of using this to gamble - if you can see the result, every bet is a sure thing right? Problem is that he can't control the timing of his visions.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was quite young. The first time I wrote a story for fun, I would have been maybe 9 or 10 years old.

As I grew older and started working, I found that I had less time for writing and made a conscious effort to leave it alone. You could say that when I became a man, I put aside childish things aside, but I wouldn't say that because I don't like biblical references.

Now that I have completely given up on being an adult, I am writing again.

What if you knew in advance?
