Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
I write on an antique secretary desk. I modified it slightly to hold the computer cords for my laptop, but I love that I can fold it up and hide it away! I light candles when I write. It might be a bit cheezy, but somehow setting the stage really helps me get into writing mode, that and it's a bit chilly in my writing room so a few candles really adds to the warmth. My magnetic board is above it with all the sticky-notes I have for my current writing project.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Edmonton. I went to schools that were pretty rough, and I was always different from the other kids. By the time I hit grade 9 I grew tired of being bullied, so I became a punk rocker, and while it only slightly changed things, I could tell myself it was persecution for being a punk rather than feeling bad about myself.
