Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
Nothing fancy really. It's just a desk with a computer on it. My son built the computer for me, so it's special. My Star Wars mouse pad is about the only thing that might seem unique I guess. Sorry if this sounds boring.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Western Pennsylvania. I'm sure that no matter where you grow up it has an impact on what you write about. We are all just the sum total of our experiences so I'm sure that those experiences probably make their way into my stories to one degree or another.
