I am an aspiring writer who currently teaches reading and writing. Recently, I self-published an e-book, and I am learning the art of self-promotion. This summer, I have educated myself on publishing to Smashwords, so I am just getting started here. Be on the look out for more! I hope to get my other e-books published here when they are available for renewal. I am also planning to get a full-length novel in e-book and print, within the next year. Life is a trip, and writing is the best escape for me!
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up as a child in many different states, from California to Minnesota, to Iceland to Virginia, then to Florida. This all stemmed from being a Navy brat. Yes, it influenced my writing. I suppose it influenced me by making me more open-minded to other places and different types of people. It also forced me to leave friendships behind and rely more on my own mind to entertain myself in the interim. I suspect that's why I started making up stories.
Describe your desk
They say a clean desk is the sign of a sick mind. Guess I'm safe there! Cluttered is the word to describe my desk. But everything has its own corner, at least. As I finish one project, I can purge or put away one stack or notebook. So it is not just a static clutter; it is all useful.

In a time of distress, Ben must choose between two drastically different paths.
