Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Mostly non-fiction. I like to read biographies. Or history. I don't know why but I find all kinds of story ideas in real life people and events. For instance, one week I read like 23 books on the JFK assassination and outlined, I think, 4 different stories I want to explore after I finish the project I'm working on now. Not about JFK. About the CIA and covert stuff our government gets with.
When did you first start writing?
Well, let's see... I think around 9th grade. I had a couple of great English teachers; one in Jr. High and the other in High school. My High school teacher had probably the biggest influence on me. I went to an alternative high school and a couple of the teachers there, I think, saw something in me that no one had really focused on before. I guess they saw some potential, I don't know. But they were not going to let me just skate through. They kind of held me to a high standard and challenged me. I remember one assignment I had in Alison's class where I just sort of tried to, you know, 'phone in' my story. That was a mistake. She got in my face and said something like if that was all my talent was worth to me, then fine. She would give me a passing grade and I could move on. But that would be a waste because my story had everything in it to be a really great project and I should be the one pushing to get it out. Not her. I thought she was crazy. But when I went back and gave it another pass, I saw what she meant. She was right. I've never really looked back from there.
