Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
White House Road is based on a popular urban myth that surrounds an area in St. Louis County. I remember as a teenager my friends and I would go there to drive around and of course the boys would always "break down", go out to the woods, and scare us girls. The myth is still around today and this is what the book is based on. A supernatural thriller about entities that lurk in the woods surrounding the area..
When did you first start writing?
I started writing fiction when I was a child. I wrote my first short story at the age of eleven. I still have that story to this day.
