Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes! I was about 14 year old I think. I drew the whole thing too! It was a first person series, staring a kitten that was adopted into the perfect family, who just moved into the perfect house... that was built over a Native American burial ground. As the only creature who could see ghosts Miles fights ghosts while staying out of trouble and trying not to get blamed for the antics of poltergeists.
What is your writing process?
It always begins with a two and a half hour Beyonce session. Don't ask me what that means, you just have to be here when it happens. Then, I settle down into a nest I create out of junk food, red bull and virgin sacrifices. Finally, when the "Buddhist Monk" playlist on Pandora settles in, I am ready to slay.
