Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in San Antonio, I've become very familiar with the surrounding environment, city, and structures and it's often intolerable weather patterns. My first book, Unsuspected, takes place within the city. Other places i frequent, such as Mustang Island, Dallas, Houston, and Colorado, and allot of their areas to many of my written works. The fictional city of West Creek which I've introduced in Dead Ends and will continue to make appearances is based of both San Antonio and Colorado Springs and is named after a neighborhood in which i made my home for a long time.
When did you first start writing?
After I became interested in writing as a very young man I'd doodle things, ideas, subjects, dreams. Most often I kept a diary which I wrote in prolifically, discovering that I enjoyed writing very much. I became interested after picking up my Aunt's copy of Cujo at a young age, but I'm not sure what age that was, and would have to estimate around nine. I really started writing stories though in high school when i started two different collections of fan fictions.
