Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love rock climbing and being outdoors, so when I'm not writing, that's usually what I'm up to. I actually just finished a year long rock climbing road trip across the United States and Canada with my wife. Other than that, I also enjoy playing video games (mostly for the storytelling and social aspects), Dungeons & Dragons, and Magic: The Gathering.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Arizona, near the town of Prescott. My 5th-grade teacher instilled a love of science in me, which is one of the major reasons why I love sci-fi so much. I'm also a dreamer, a "what-if"er, and when you combine that with a knowledge of science, you end up with a ​sci-fi author.
