Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I spent my early years traveling the world, following my father from naval base to naval base. I finally settled in central California when I started high school. I was fortunate to have been able to experience the different cultures, seeing how they differed and how similar they were in many ways. They still laughed and cried, were happy and saddened- the only difference was how they expressed themselves.
Describe your desk
I do most of my writing sitting on the couch in the living room, my laptop in my lap on a small padded table.

    An original story, well written, and thought provoking. As a SL player myself, I felt as if the author had pulled the characters, situations, and dialog straight from my own account logs at time. This would be an enjoyable read for any Resident, and a fun introduction to most newbies.
