Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first began writing to try and explain the death of my mother from cancer when she was 28. I was only three years old at the time. My earliest memory is toddling up to her casket at the funeral parlor. Staring at the lifeless body I received a strong impression from her. She told me that she wasn't really dead, that the body wasn't really her. I've spent my life investigating metaphysics and spirituality in an attempt to explain this.
In my twenties and thirties I turned my back on spirituality and became a skeptic.
Then in my forties I had what you might call a spiritual awakening. Don't ask me how it happened because I don't know. I just woke up to a part of myself I didn't know was there.
All of my books are infused with the concept of higher consciousness. Many of my characters are psychically awake, or have some ability that normal humans don't have. This is because, I believe, the human race is waking up. You'd never suspect it, given the state of affairs at the time I write this. But I am an eternal optimist when it comes to my own future, and the future of humanity. All of my writing reflects this because I believe in happy endings.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I never write unless I feel inspired. Give me a desk and a keyboard, a word processing program, and a connection to the internet and I'm all set. The feeling I get when I'm writing is a flow of creative energy going through me. It doesn't get any better than that!
