Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Valley Center, Kansas. All of my writing takes place in the same "universe" and Valley Center in my stories is a sort of nexus where all sorts of bizarre things happen. I don't focus everything in that town, but the stuff that happens there, look out. I suppose being from small town America, I saw a lot of it as boring, and I wanted to spice things up with monsters, ghosts, aliens, and the like.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote blurbs in high school. Mainly from being bored. I didn't really start writing my short stories until I was in the Air Force.
