1. What am I working on right now? I’m gearing up for July’s Camp NaNo. I have 2 novels in the pipeline for it just like I did in November.

Along with a new idea of shape shifters who’s animals are extinct species like cave bears, being pursued by Crypto zoologists.

3. What was the first creative piece I remember writing? The Adventures of a School Desk. It’s the first creative writing assignment I ever had. I remember the pleasure I felt as I wrote and read it. I have to confess I still have it. It’s terrible but still my favorite story ever.

5. When did I decide to become a writer? You can decide that? I had people in my head wanting to tell there story, they had nowhere to grow because I am me and take up all the room inside me. So, I give them pages to live within and they are constantly surprising me.
