Describe your desk
My desk? Oh where I write. Well I don't write at a desk but I move around the house bring my laptop with me. Sometimes I'm in bed, sometimes the sofa, sometimes a chair; basically anywhere comfortable enough to write.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up all over the San Francisco Bay Area, because of the diversity of the people here I'm actually more comfortable with writing characters who come from all over the world. It would be awkward for me to write a cast who were from all one country or that are all the same race. That is not my reality and I can't create that in fiction.
This writing sample is in the form, “Child as the narrator" I have a new appreciation for the memories that young children make and keep. This is my actual memory from when I was 20 months old. A great read for anyone who dares to underestimate the memory retention of infants and toddlers. For adults 18+ for drug reference.

I read this a while ago and thought it was very good. Though it is a short story, the connection between the charactors is well established, and it makes the end of the story very moving, I highly recommend it.
