Smashwords Interview

Question 1) When did you first realize you wanted to be a Sci-Fi writer?
In the third or fourth grade. I wrote short stories with a friend and realized I like to write science fiction the best. I started to write Sci-Fi seriously in 2001. Now that I am retired, I can write full-time or whenever I wish. I try to write and self-publish at least one new book a year.
Question 2) What authors and books inspire your writing?
When I was young, I read everything I could get my hands on. In Sci-Fi, I read all the old masters like Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Frank Herbert, George Orwell, Jules Verne, H.G. Wells; you name them. My favorite Sci-Fi Authors today include Jay Allan, Kevin J. Anderson, Ryk Brown, Susan Collins, James Dashner, Hugh Howey, B.V. Larson, A.G. Riddle, Veronica Roth, John Scalzi, Dan Simmons, Allen Steele, Raymond L. Weil, Rick Yancey and so many more. I still read everything by everybody and find exciting writers everywhere.
