Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I read a variety of genres and topics for pleasure, but my favorite is science fiction, particularly the science fiction that confronts big "what if" questions and philosophic approaches to the use of scientific ideas. I also read some forensic dramas, historical fiction, action adventure, and paranormal. I do have a preference for well-written books, or books with a writing style specific to the story itself, such as The Great Gatsby or anything by Tolkien. I also love the occasional science documentary, and pseudoscience book. Some authors I love include Terry Pratchett, J.R.R Tolkien, Clive Cussler, Micheal Crighton, Charles Sheffield, Kathy Reichs, Tamara Thorn(Thunder Road), Zechariah Sitchen, and a few independent authors, such as A.R. Crebs.
Describe your desk
My desk is an old white teacher-style desk with one long drawer over my leg space, two standard sized drawers, and one deep file drawer. It holds the majority of my mailing, art supplies, and pen collection. The deep drawer is where I store official documents and a few binders full of art and writing. Over the years, the flotsam and jetsam have varied, but currently I have an assortment of gemstones, statuary, a lamp, a lava lamp, and a miscellaneous bin of stuff on top of old sketch pads, a three-hole punch and a stapler. I have a wooden TV tray for extra work space, and an open spot to either set up the laptop or work on my jewelry hobby. I've had this desk since I was very little, and even though I would love to repaint it(it's got splotches of nail polish and project paint on it, as well as glue and other strange marks), sitting there reminds me of my youth, and my early writing days.
