Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
My desk is a wide triangular double-tier modernistic thing which fits into a corner of the Japanese shoji screens which divide my space from my roommate's. It's got my laptop, which I use in lieu of a typewriter, a container full of pens, notepads in which I write notes pertaining to my books as well as journals, a few spare USB backup drives, a 3TB backup hard drive, and scratch paper. And a coaster for setting the coffee.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up between the SF Peninsula and Hawaii, where I spent several years of my childhood. I'd say that Hawaii influenced the way I deal with people a lot more than it did my writing, but in terms of my writing, it fostered a sense of individuality and imagination which I am sure could not have blossomed on the mainland. And the SF Peninsula in the late sixties-early seventies was a very fervid cultural and counter-cultural environment, and all those things were definitely a big influence on me. It was the de facto capital of the world, or at least the West Pole, for a number of years.
