Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small mill town in Central Pennsylvania. The sixties was a great time to be a kid where I lived. My house was on the street corner and my backyard was the playground for all the neighborhood kids. Almost every summer we rebuilt our tree fort in the cherry tree or at least added to it. Baseball games were plenty. We even managed to put on plays in that backyard. I look back on those days with a smile on my face.
When did you first start writing?
When I was a stay-at-home mom with two small sons.
