Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a somewhat rural area, and having lots of time to myself with a pile of comic books definitely helped foster imagination.
When did you first start writing?
Probably in first grade. I took second place in the young authors contest at my school, but I think I lost points because my story about time traveling back to win the Vietnam War was too violent!
