Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
I've always felt very influenced by Louis L'Amour. The man taught as he wrote and he worked hard at it. Following his characters through their struggles did a lot to shape my young mind. Concepts like bravery, respect for women, and true manhood are concepts I think this world could use a lot more of, especially now.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a card carrying mad scientist and I spend my time building lasers to burn stuff, throwing thermite parties with my brothers, and dreaming of the day that I can afford a Fresian stallion and a field to ride him through. (There may be a cape and a large dog involved as well)
