Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
The first memory I have of writing was probably about the age of 12. I was writing rhymes and poems. My writing, I think came as a result of drawing and sketching animal pictures copied from TV Guide or other commercial print.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The book came about from the emotional attachment I developed for a young man I had never met, except through the descriptions of his troubles conveyed by his grandmother, my friend. I felt I needed to help him, and writing this story for him was my only avenue to intervene on his behalf.
