Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is getting to write a story with my brother-in-law, Tim. Tim and I collaborated on the text and then I bought materials for Tim to do the drawings. Sarah Grillo took those drawings and turned them into the online versions for the book. It was so exciting to collaborate with them and let the book develop over time.
What are you working on next?
I want to work on a book about neurodiversity. This book begins to tackle that idea but I want to showcase a famous person with special needs being successful.
