Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on the Canadian prairies. And when I say 'prairies' I mean grass. Lots and lots of grass. Seeing a tree was exciting because they were few and far between. The closest playmate was miles away. Our TV access was limited to three channels, none of them very clear and none of them had any children's programming. There was really nothing to do except create.

As a result, my sisters and I grew vivid imaginations. We would run through the fields pretending to be sorcerers, vampires, elves, or starship captains. We created our own worlds and filled them with fictional people. Years later, when I would decide to write for a living, these worlds and characters were still with me and became the basis for most of my stories.
When did you first start writing?
I've been writing since I was a child. Journals, stories, whatever came to mind. I wrote my first novel in 8th grade. But I didn't start writing with the intention of making a living until my late 20s. Once I had two young children of my own, I realized they might like to read the stories running around in my head, so I wrote them down and they eventually became my published novels.
