Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. As a child, I heard many stories of Appalachia and over time some of those stories have made it into my work.
When did you first start writing?
I think I've been writing stories since I was able to read and write. I know I wrote an absolutely horrid gothic romance novel around age 11.
