Mercedes welcome to my blog. Tell us where you were born?
MMY: I was born in American Fork, Utah. I grew up in Emery County, which is a rural little town in the middle of the desert. Iâ€™m currently living in Vegas, which is certainly a change.Â I miss small town life.
That is for sure, Who or What inspired you to write this book?
MMY: This book came about after years of writing and publishing in magazines and anthologies. I was working on â€œThe Novelâ€ but I truly love short stories. I kept writing them on the side while working on longer pieces. I had thought about putting a collection together, but it was sort of a pie-in-the-sky dream. I didnâ€™t take it seriously until the editor at Shock Totem mentioned it to me, that heâ€™d be interested in putting it out. Sometimes it takes another person to wake you up to what you want.
Very impressive. Tell us more… (more…)
