Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I generally write best early in the morning. When the juices are really flowing I awake with a head ful of ideas and lay them down on the page. I try to plan out milestones to hit along the way and once I have finished my first draft I like to read it on an e reader and make changes as I go.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
This would have been at school but I am sad that I have only ever read a handful of novels because only special ones seem to grab me.
