Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up moving around the Southwest. We moved every two years for most of my life. So I never really had a "hometown". As much as I hated having to move from place to place, my father and mother always made an effort to make each move seem like a grand adventure. And I find to this day that my heart longs for that sense of something new. My books follow that pattern, set in places like Ireland, Colombia, Vienna, Hallstadt, Atlanta, Manhattan and Colorado. My characters seem to crave adventure as much as I do!
When did you first start writing?
I've always written. From the time I could hold a pencil and was presented with a blank piece of paper, I had stories to tell. But I didn't actually think of writing as a career until I was almost forty. With my daughter heading off to grade school, I needed to find a new identity. And so I made a list. Crazy pie in the sky things that I'd always wanted to do. And one of those things was to write a book. After much contemplation, I decided I should give it a try. And here I am almost twenty years later, still writing, still publishing, and still pinching myself to prove that it's true.
