When did you start writing? I started writing fiction maybe seven years ago, but I was a print journalist for about a decade before that. Writing has always been the sharpest arrow in my quiver, and I've used it a lot over the years.
 
When and what and where did you first get published? My first published work was a book report I did in second grade. I can't remember the process, but somehow, for some reason, the local paper picked it up. The book involved a Native American boy who played hooky from school and was chased by a bear.
 
What themes do you like to write about? I like writing about change and what that change turns us into. We're always in the process of growing as people and falling back. It's a constant wrestling match between our nature and our better selves. 
 
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work?  I go on author kicks. Right now I'm reading a lot of Kurt Vonnegut. I like the sad/amused/wise/warm way he looked at the world. He loved it while constantly shaking his head at it.
