Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing at a very young age. I used my quiet time to imagine things that I wanted to experience and how I would feel when I did. I also wrote about experiences and the things I learned from them. I tried my hand at poetry too, but it was not exactly my strongest gift.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Camden, NJ to a family of hardworking people who understood the value of a good education and the need to have the ability to communicate your thoughts and ideas both verbally and in writing. My Mother and Great Grandfather influenced my writing and encouraged me to express my thoughts and ideas.
