Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I enjoy reading series, the longer the better. Off the top of my head, I love Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time," Taylor Anderson's "Destroyermen," John Ringo's "Black Tide Rising" (among others of his), and Piers Anthony's Xanth series, just to name a few.

I also enjoy singular novels like Stephen King's "IT," Neal Stephenson's "Reamde," Arthur C. Clarke's "Childhood's End," and Ernest Cline's "Ready Player One."
Describe your desk
Funny question, but okay.

It's brown and made of wood, with seven drawers.
