Conversational Snow, flash fiction, Issue 29, December 1, 2014

When did you start writing? I wrote picture books when I was nine, monologues and short plays when I was a teen, and occasional early chapters of novels for a long time after that. I began taking writing more seriously in early 2013, focusing mostly on short stories.
When and what and where did you first get published? My first fiction publication was a microflash, "Pinata," at Fifty Word Stories.
What themes do you like to write about? A lot of my story ideas begin with wondering "what if?" and I let the theme flow from there. I like to explore the influence of the past and the shady side of potential futures.
