Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I remember very vividly when I started writing seriously. It was on January 14, 2005 in the middle of the night.
What's the story behind your latest book?
"Walks: A Collection of Haiku" is a series of short books that celebrate my passion for the Haiku.

I wanted to focus on the idea of movement.

Movement is part of us. Even the shortest destination, such as going to our car or our kitchen, requires walking. Many people walk without thinking. As a result, they will miss many things that could have brightened their day.

As a photographer with a passion for details, I walk with intent. I pay attention to things around me and I want to help others do too.

I have studied and written haiku for many years. But this series of books has taught me how to engage with my inner voice in a unique way.
