Don’t miss today’s interview of me at Jessie Clever’s site. It’s a wonderful set of questions and a terrific site. beginning with her question:
“What author first inspired you to write your own stories?”
And my response admitting:
It was a non-person author. I was a science fiction fan as a child, so the author of the Tom Swift. Jr., series, Victor Appleton II, who I thought at the time was a single, real person, was the first author that made me think, “wouldn’t it be great if my name were on a book like this?” As you may know, Victor Appleton is actually a house pseudonym used by the Stratemeyer Syndicate, and there are a number of ghost writers that contributed to that series of books. But to the best of my recollection, that’s where the idea germinated.
