Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a middle class family, and thus never had the money to study further. My Grandfather told me at a young age that even when you think you have nothing in life, you should sit and concentrate on the little you do have. I did this and the only little I did have was to write stories. All you need to write is your brain, and a computer I guess. You need to tap into your imagination. We all have that.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I took a long time writing this book as I am doing two jobs . In the time this book was written I have had a lot of death in my family. I guess this in returned helped me zone in and concentrate more on what was important in this book. Death becomes easier to write about as you experience it more yourself.
