Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town in Upstate New York where everyone knew one another. I had a relative on just about every block, and I made friends in grade school I still have today. My friends and family definitely influence my writing. They've made me the man and writer I am today.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually look for stories similar to those from my favorite authors. There are always lists to find online.
