Writing, the theme of family, inspiration, Stephen King, and my time on the U.S.S. Enterprise… blogger Judy Goodwin has interviewed yours truly! Here’s a brief intro:
1. What first drew you to writing?
The short answer would be… love. Thanks to my dad, I’m a TV baby, and I found myself wanting more stories about my favorite TV characters, so I started to write them myself. This being back in the pre-computer days, I did all my writing in spiral notebooks with a ballpoint pen, and sometimes I churned out so much material that it caused my hand to cramp and burn — all for something that had a readership of one. (Me.) Years later I found out that what I was doing was called fanfiction, and that thousands of other people did it too. What a revelation! I’d always thought I was the only one.
