How has your upbringing influenced your writing?
-Not really. I think my writing has been more heavily influenced by the latter half of my life. I wasn’t much of a writer or reader growing up. I think much of that developed as I got older.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
-A few years back, I took a job at an engineering firm. Shortly after I started, I was introduced to colleague who was writing a text book. I agreed to help him edit as well as write a sort chapter. I enjoyed the process and I guess it stuck with me because a year or so later I started writing my first book.
When and why did you begin writing?
-Like any job, there are lull periods. There was one such stretch where I went weeks without much to do around the office. I had reached the end of the internet and felt like I might lose it if I have to sit still for another day. So one day, I started writing. I came up with the concept and searched “How to write a novel,” and that was it.
How long have you been writing?
-Most of my life I’ve been a technical writer. It wasn’t until 2012 that I really began my life as a creative writer.
When did you first know you could be a writer?
-Originally I wasn’t planning on ever showing my story to anyone. It was something fun to work on. But after a year of writing and rewriting my story I finally showed it to people. It wasn’t until my friend Heather told me she had stayed late at work one day to keep reading that I realized I could really do this.
