Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I can't call this inspiration but...I'm all but forced out of bed! I've got one kid still living at home, not to mention several furry creatures who raise a ruckus if I'm not out of bed by a certain time. The real question should be be what inspires me to stay out of bed, because I do love sleep.

Some days, though...only coffee keeps me from diving back under the covers.
When did you first start writing?
It seems like at birth...but in reality, I wrote my first couple of stories in 3rd or 4th grade. I was always telling myself stories in my head, way before I started writing them down.
