Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. They are partners in the enterprise. Without a reader a novel, a story, a tale, a poem, are just words waiting. It takes a reader to breathe life into them, give them meaning and direction.
What are you working on next?
Several things. I have various works at various stages of completion. I work on first second and third drafts of different projects at the same time.

A couple of the current ones are out and out silly funny works, while one is a more serious novel that lies somewhere between a ghost story, a science fiction story and a fantasy.
