Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Orem, Utah. I am the ninth child of ten. One of my earliest childhood memories is of my mom. Every time we would mispronounce or use incorrect grammar in our vocabulary, my mom would make us repeat our sentence the correct way, haha. My parents divorced when I was ten, so we were very poor. But my mother's love for books carried over to her children. She instilled in us a love for reading instead of watching TV. It's from her that I gained my love for books. And I eventually decided to write my own.
When did you first start writing?
This is actually a funny question. And probably an unusual reason to start writing. But my sister and brother had started writing books of their own. It was taking an extraordinary amount of time for them to finish, so I decided to see how long it actually took to write a novel. It took me four months:)
