Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
Actually, my desk is filled with multiple computers and an overhead TV to keep abreast of the happenings in our ever changing world. To keep things as simple as possible, I usually have three stacks of work in progress in addition to my computer files: do now, important but later, and pending assignment. It may not be the most sophisticated system ever created but it works well for me.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Northeastern Alabama in the very small town of Crossville, on Sand Mountain, the highest part of the state. It's rural beauty and strong people have inspired me throughout my life and continue to do so. It was a very special time and place to grow up in America.
