Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Well, I think the very first story I wrote was in kindergarten when he had a 'write and illustrate a book project.' I recall writing a story about a very bad day, which included getting sick (illustrated with a stick person with a chicken-pox like red speckled face) and slipping and falling on ice. If I remember correctly, the twist ending was that it was all a nightmare.
Who are your favorite authors?
Maggie Stiefvater, Lemony Snicket, Gillian Flynn, Rainbow Rowell, S.E. Hinton, and David Levithan... to name a few.
