Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Not really, but I had really good English teachers from a young age so it was probably a story I did for one of those classes.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually from friends. Most of the people I know enjoy reading and have excellent taste in books, so I take their recommendations seriously. Of course, I have run into the occasional book I don't like, but when I consider the number of outstanding books I might not have discovered otherwise -- totally worth taking the chance.
