Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada. My book series, Colours In Blackness, is based in this town. When I first moved there from Windsor, Ontario, it was a tiny town with only one stop light. It grew and grew and now there are many stop lights. I felt a need to put Tecumseh on the map, so to speak. Besides, it's easier to write what you know.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Sure I do! It was the first book in this series - Colours In Blackness - A New Life. Before that, nothing. I'm one of those people who doesn't do just a little bit of anything. If I'm going to do something, I'm going to do it all the way.
