Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Rochester, New York, and I still live there. I have never lived anywhere else. What influenced my writing more than my hometown was my upbringing. My Mom was a big reader, and she shared her love of books with me. We spent lots of time in libraries and used book stores.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I remember writing in composition books in grammar school (creative writing), but I don't remember what the stories were about.
