What inspires you to write?
The desire to share my story with others and to let them know that their struggle is not exclusive, and it will end and your life will be better but you must finish the"test".
Remember, without a test there is no "testimony" and without a mess there is no " message".
Tell us about your writing process.
My writing process is quite simple. I write down what I feel and how I feel about the situation or event that I am going through. My feelings are genuine with hopes that I convey a positive message to my readers while simultaneously going through life's battles and struggles that appear to be all consuming and hopeless.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Who are your favorite authors?
Jodi Piccoult – "The Pact"
Jim Stovall – "Wisdom for Winners"
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I really did not decide. Self-publishing chose me. Self-publishing allowed me the opportunity to be able to get my book published immediately and I would have more authority on what was in my book and the message that I wanted to convey to my readers.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I believe that book publishing will always have a future. I believe that most people still want to hold the actual book in their hand as opposed to e-books.
What genres do you write?
Non-Fiction/Women's Issues, Health/Fitness, Inspirational
What formats are your books in?
