Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing
I grew up in a small gold mining town in California. My cousins and I all lived on the same street. that alone has given me many things to write about.The family has been a good source of material to write about. My father and his family migrated to California in the 1930's ,but have since spread out.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing about 4 years a go , but it has always been short articles, for some different online publishers. This is my first real try at writing a book. I CHOSE APPLES BECAUSE I raised apples for 10 years, qand kid of know the game.
