Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
Oh, that's a tough one! I don't think I have a preference but I did purchase two Kobo e-readers, first generation and the Kobo Glo, but I've started re-reading physical books. I like taking advantage of book sales and participating in book exchanges at work. I did have a small fascination with the Kindle at some point and I've read books on my mobile phone and tablets.
When did you first start writing?
Pretty much around 8 years old, I started writing in my diary. I began writing short stories in 2005 and basically wrote my first novella, Bitten, in 2011.
