Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
My love of writing began in elementary school. I remember being really excited when the teacher announced we would be completing a writing assignment, especially if it was a short story. I believe I was in the 6th grade when I penned my first love story.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in California, which is funny since I write Amish fiction. I don't know if there has ever been Amish people living in California; according to my research, the majority reside in PA, OH, and IN. California does play a part in my writing, though. Danika, the main character in 'Danika's Journey' (which is FREE, by the way) is from California. The state is also visited by characters in 'An Unforgivable Secret'.
