Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh, yes, and it was horrible. But that's what being a kid is all about. I got into writing through, and I used to have some *really* cliché stereotypes and tropes. But hey, I learned from the experience, and I got better. So here I am, more than fifteen years later, turning out quality published works.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
"The Beast From The East" by R. L. Stein was the first book I read cover to cover, and it taught me that the strange and unusual didn't have to be scary, it just had to be fun. Most of my stories are that way because it -- I try to take strange or unusual things and spin them so they're interesting and engaging.
