Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up as a military brat, so I had the opportunity to live in many places, which included three years in Germany. Then I served in the Air Force for five years and had the opportunity to live in Germany for another three years. Living in so many different locations allowed me to experience many different cultures which opened my eyes to a much broader world. The effect on me was and has been enlightening.
When did you first start writing?
I began writing poetry almost fifty years ago, initially just for fun. Later, and I don't know exactly when, writing poems became more frequent. Then, perhaps over the last four or five years, writing became almost an obsession ( one that I must say I enjoy).
