Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Most of my time growing up was spent in California, but I've lived in Oklahoma and Kansas and even spent a couple of years out of the country, life of a military brat!
When did you first start writing?
Wow, that's a tough one. I remember writing in elementary school, but I don't recall the exact moment. I just remember being in fifth grade and being proud that I already knew how to use quotation marks for dialogue when the rest of the class was just learning that concept.
