Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Philadelphia. I moved a few times in my life and have grown up in both the Logan and Northeast section of Philadelphia. Two opposite ends; the hood vs. the suburbs. These opportunities of residence have given me versatile writing. The inspiration from the scenery, the atmosphere of the environment and different interactions with others have introduced me to different stories.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I actually don't remember the first story I ever read. That was long ago. But, I do know that at a very young age I had a love for reading.
