Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small village in southern West Virginia. I was fortunate to have good teachers who insisted that their students learn the elements of English Composition. Every grade beginning at the seventh had essay assignments which were an important part of earning a passing grade. I learned to love writing and wrote letters to the editor of city newspaper near our village. When these were published it inspired me to begin writing short stories.
When did you first start writing?
I was either thirteen or fourteen.
