Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Brooklyn, New York - specifically, Park Slope. My writing has definitely been influenced by the colorful people I knew growing up, as well as by my experiences there. A good number of the details in my stories draw from those experiences to a degree. So while many of these elements may seem a little crazy or far fetched, they're actually based on true events and somewhat on the individual people in my life - but they are disguised as composites, with perhaps a greater amount of my own imaginative devices thrown in as well. My projects are my "take" on what I witnessed growing up.
When did you first start writing?
I actually do not remember a time when I wasn't writing, that is, after I first learned how to write. I was always keeping journals and notes on things I did as a child, and things I saw and experienced. I don't know why I kept journals from an early age, but I did. Many of those journals are lost now, but they covered everything from observations regarding an ant farm that I kept, to the types of birds that would come to feed in my backyard, as well as any behavioral or unusual activity that they would exhibit.
