Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
When I can't sleep (which is way too often) I work out problems or scenes or dialogue in my head. I've got to get to my computer before it all vanishes like a dream. I keep a notepad and pen by my bedside, but because I can't always read in the light of day what I've scratched in the dark, it's best to just get up and get to my computer. And it's fun. So I enjoy getting my hands on the keys so I can start creating.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When am I not writing?
No, really, I guess there is a little bit of time here or there. I love reading, so I often have two or three books going at once—at least one non-fiction and one fiction. When I'm too tired to create my own stories, I curl up on the couch and let someone else do the writing. I love playing violin with my band. I hate cooking and I hate cleaning, so fortunately those don't get in my way too often.
