Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I can't say I do. I don't ever recall not loving to read though. I especially used to love the Trixie Belden Series when I was young. I don't know if it a specific impact on me. But I used to pretend I was Trixie.
How do you approach cover design?
I struggled with the cover of Guardian, I began trying to design my own but didn't really like anything I came up with. A Facebook friend directed me to a cover designer, and although I loved the pre-made covers she had for sale, none of them were quite right. Fortunately she was happy to work with me to design a custom cover and I have to admit. I love the finished result.

    What a beautiful heartwarming Christmas story. The only negative aspect of this story was that it's too short.
