Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Brooklyn and Staten Island were home till my early twenties. Living there exposed me to the unique characters in my latest book, Complicit Witness. The neighborhoods were filled with wannabes and schemers and provided a heap of unusual experiences to draw upon. It also made clear that there is no easy way to make it, you have to work hard at whatever you do.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to express myself while communicating a story to a reader is very rewarding. Putting the stories that float and develope in my mind into a book takes discipline but is woth the effort, hearing from readers that enjoy it is the icing on the cake.
