Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I remember my first book very well. I was six years old and I wrote a five-page book on, birds, with my hand-drawn illustrations. Then, to make the book more authentic, I used my mother’s sewing machine to bind the pages together. She loved my ingenuity but was a little angry because it took her an hour to untangle the mess I left her sewing machine in.
My next real story didn’t come until I was 18 and in the army. I wrote an article for a magazine that got published. That did it for me, I was hooked!
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors are those who inspired me. Louis L’Amour, the great storyteller, is one of my all time favorites. I am currently rereading the Sacketts. Other favorites are Daniel Defoe, Jules Verne, Hemingway, and Twain among others. I guess you can see a pattern in that I love adventure books.
