Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in many different places in Colorado and Utah. I get a lot of inspiration from the Rocky Mountains, with its vast beauty. I usually write about living in the mountains in fictional towns that are based on real towns. In some cases I will research a place that I have never been to before, but feel like I've been there anyway through hours and months of looking into that particular town both online and at the library.
When did you first start writing?
The minute I entered kindergarten and the teacher taught me how to read and write, I was hooked on writing. I have some of my earlier works laminated and compiled the collection in a nice leather bound folder. In the third grade, my teacher let the whole class perform in my first play. I was the writer, director and actor. I don't know whatever happened to that particular story and to tell you the truth, I don't really remember what it was all about, but I will never forget how that teacher's confidence in me sent me soaring above the clouds!

Later on, I wrote on legal pad notebooks. In junior high school, I would have my classmates read my stories and get feedback that way. I joined the literary magazine in high school and published many poems in the local newspaper and poetry contest books. Before the computer was readily available, I wrote my first short story on an electronic typewriter. In college, I spread my wings and wrote several screenplays and short stories on the computer. I also became a reporter/writer in several college newspapers. I also interned at a PBS station when I was a college senior.

After college, I worked at the local newspaper and several local radio stations. I didn't start becoming serious about writing novels until 2005. I still don't write as often as I'd like or should because of my personal obligations to my family, but I am very proud to say to people that I am an erotic romance novelist that has three books published. There are many stories that haven't been published, mainly due to the fact that I am a perfectionist.

Some day, I would like to publish my illustrated children's books. Some day...
