Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
When a friend suggested I write a book my first thought was, "There are already too many books out there..." It took four years to write Convergence, my first book.
What is your writing process?
It depends on the topic. The non-fiction books are written around a hypothesis that comes from observing people and life. The exception was a novel called Cycles, a journey to purpose. The characters in Cycles appeared, and often surprised me, as I wrote.
