Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
So many different things. My family, above all else. My wife and two children are constant reminders that I truly have a fantastic life, and I approach every single day with that in mind.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
It really depends. We have two homes, one of which is pretty far out in the countryside. That's my preferred spot, honestly, and I like to live with minimal distractions. Sunsets and family time trump gadgets and technology, in my book. I'm big on meditation and the understanding of what life is truly about. When we're not out in the sticks, I enjoy good music, cigars and hanging out with the few friends I have left. Writing is a lonely life!
