Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
My desk is the size of a small kitchen table. It has a table fan, radio, and a lamp so that I can work at night and not disturb my husband's sleep. I also have a small basket with pens, pencils, tape, sticky notes, colorful stick pens, paper clips, etc. My desk looks like one that you would find in an office. Most of the time everything stays organized but when I get into a midnight writing session it's a different story. I also have a scented candle that I burn when I feel overwhelmed. The scent helps to relax me.
When did you first start writing?
I have always loved writing. As a child and teenager I wrote short stories but never kept them. I wrote in journals and scribbled whenever I had a chance. I am now beginning to publish some of my work.
