Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to start writing?
I am very opinionated and my opinions are not mainstream. So I started putting my thoughts and opinions down on paper. After a year I had enough essays to put into a book. This became my first book: Am I the Only One That Signals? I came up with the title because my opinions are as unusual as my habit for using turn signals.
Your website calls you a Person of Interest; what make you a person of interest?
I admit I took the name from the TV show. However, I am not about to become a victim or perpetrator of a crime. I am anything but average. I wear narrow shoes, don’t eat seafood, don’t have a dog or children. I do have one live plant. I write provocative humor. My essays are humorous or satirical and are intended to provoke discussion and debate.
