Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Texas. I'm not sure how it influenced my writing other than the twang and slang that spills onto the pages. I believe the people around me, family, friends and coworkers definitely influenced the characters that I write about but [I think] that influence could be found anywhere in the world as part of the human condition.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
That depends on the season, the weather and my mood. I believe family comes first but since it's only me and the mister at home now I spend my spare time meandering outdoors, grooming the dogs, playing some silly game on my iPad and taking photos, I also like to blog and share photographs over at WordPress.
