I live in Florida. You'll most likely find me hiding indoors, reveling in air conditioned comfort. In my spare time I enjoy phoning in Bigfoot sightings to the Department of Fish and Wildlife. They are heartily sick of hearing from me.
When did you first start writing?
When I was old enough to hold a pencil. I wrote my first book at age seven. It was ten pages and twenty seven chapters with lots of short punchy sentences like...Chapter Five. He saw a ghost. Chapter Six. It was scary. Chapter Seven. He ran away....well, Mom like it.
What's the deal with writing? Why do you do it?
Did you ever feel life would be so much more interesting if only everyone would do exactly as you say? I know. It's a darn shame, but that's not going to happen. Instead, I create my own worlds populated by my own characters...and they still don't do what I say. Sometimes, I try to write them with a specific characteristic or doing a particular action. They just won't have it and decide to go their own way and lead the story in a completely unexpected direction. I like the surprise of not knowing what's around the next paragraph.
