Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Born and raised in Minneapolis. I'm taking this opportunity to explore my hometown during the postwar years, when I grew up, formed, frightened, and fascinated by my own little world.
When did you first start writing?
In high school. In fact, however, I've been making up stories since as far back as I can remember. Oddly (or not), even the earliest ones incorporated sketchy characters and law enforcement.
