Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in New England, about 30 miles from Boston. When I was a teenager I wanted to explore beyond the boundaries of New England. I joined the US Air Force in hopes to travel around the world. I wanted to be stationed in Japan. Instead, I was stationed in Wichita, Kansas for 4 years. During that time, I had lots of opportunity to travel. After 20 years I have lived in various places across North America. In those 30 years I have come to appreciate New England and all its natural beauty and culture.
Because I grew up in New England, fond memories were create there and it has influenced my writing in many ways. There is a general coziness that comes across in most of my writing and much of comes from spending time with family during the various seasons, fall and winter being my two fondest.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book was inspired by my wife and children. For many years, as a family we have suffered many traumatic moments and had to fight to overcome some of the most difficult life altering situations the average person didn't face.
