Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I Grew up in Seattle in and out of the Foster Care system. I think growing up in those circumstances helped me to learn how to overcome some of my biggest fears. This is why i like writing about characters who are able to overcome their pasts, overcome their fears and become empowered. Its the difference between surviving and thriving.
When did you first start writing?
I have been writing short stories since i was 13 and would make up scary stories to tell other kids late at night on camping trips. It also helped me cope with issues i did not necessarily want to deal with in real life. It was a great coping technique for a teen.
