Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started in my thirties because until then I was lost. And even in my thirties, it took me until my fifties to figure out what I was doing. Some writers I know came to the big cognition long before their thirties, some after their thirties were a memory. I don't know if there is the perfect age to begin writing. All I know is that I started when an urge prompted me to.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book--due out this fall--came to me in a dream. In that dream I was a young man in love with a beautiful, dark-haired woman. I don't remember her name but she loved me, of that I was certain. We shared what felt like a brief time together before I had to leave (I was a seaman). Out at sea, my ship sank. Trapped below deck, in a fast-flooding compartment, the last thought I had was that I'd find my way back to her, somehow.
