Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
As a kid, and I used to enter any writing contest I could. I loved to read, and writing became second nature.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I'm currently working on "Frosting On The Keyboard," a novel, rather than the anthologies I usually do. It's about a social worker who grew up in foster care, who metes out punishment to some of his clients whom he feels are horrible parents. I'm still trying to decide if I will include Detective Ristrom, a recurring character of mine, in this story or not.
