Deanna Compton


I live in Michigan, where I grew up, with my husband and three children, who are growing up faster than fast. My love of reading inspired me to write, which I found to be another passion.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the beautiful lakeshore community of Muskegon, Michigan where watching the sunset over the lake is an evening out. We have four seasons in Michigan and each of them has its own character and challenges, but also each season offers its own vision. I love fall most of all. Writing is much like experiencing a colorful sunset or a cold snowy day. It awakens the senses.
When did you first start writing?
It's kind of funny why I began writing. I was working for an engineering firm in Las Vegas, NV and was good enough at my job that I had plenty of free time on my hands. Originally, I read novels and I read a lot of them--one right after another. I was at my desk one day and decided to just start writing. Only by chance I had found my passion.
