Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Some aspect of my life is always related to writing. Outside of writing I am taking a break by walking, doing chores, or playing video games.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wrote what I now know as Fan Fiction when I was 10 that was the premise of Star Trek with children as a central focus. I wrote that I was transported to the Star Trek universe (or rather kidnapped and taken to the future) and through a series of interesting circumstances, became a captain of my own starship.
