When did you first start writing?
I think it was second grade, block letters, I believe. My first novel was "AAAAAAAAaaaaaaaa"
What got you interested in writing this book?
Sitting with friends at lunch or after work, we would swap stories about the funny, scary or bizarre things that happen in our vocation. I always had something to relate that was, to say the least, different. This usually left them laughing, crying, or staring in disbelief. One day someone said that I should write a book about all this stuff, so I did.
