Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I officially began writing in 2005 when I enrolled in a correspondence course 'Breaking Into Print' with Long Ridge Writers Group.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Houston, Texas. During this time, my mom would dictate to me a grocery list of items and then send me on a few miles of walking to Shoppers Fair up the street to pick up the groceries. I believe this was my first influence to write.
