June 18th

When did you start writing?

I started writing in the 2nd grade, when I wrote about a knight lost in the forest.

When and what and where did you first get published?

The first story I published was a horror piece in the magazine Cover of Darkness.

Why do you write?

Usually out of frustration with the way things are.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy?

It is the best genre for imagery, and I was always captured by images as a child, especially those old sci-fi paperback covers.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story?

I have three favorite authors: George R. R. Martin, Stephen King, and Ken Bruen. My favorite novel is "Duma Key" by Stephen King.
