What inspires you to write?
I write non-fiction and my writing topics have been varied, including poetry, clinical psychology, my autobiography and now metaphysics. I am an eclectic writer because I am first and foremost a researcher, and I tend to wind up writing about the areas that interest me.
Tell us about your writing process.
I'm old school in that I prefer to use pen and paper when creating, then later type it in to the manuscript. There is something about being able to feel the pen on the paper that stimulates creative flow for me. The spiritual and metaphysical books I am publishing now are channeled books, meaning that it was like taking dictation. Words and pictures came in a flurry, often too fast to write down; a hailstorm of esoteric concepts. For the first few months I recorded the messages on a handheld voice recorder, then I began automatic writing.
Who are your favorite authors?
One of my favorite authors wrote, "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" by Rebecca Wells. My favorite book is her "Little Altars Everywhere," because it is written from the perspective of a child. Her writing is wistful and evokes memories of childhood and family.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
My first 5 books were self-published. I felt my autobiography needed a wider audience, so I published with an Indie publisher. The first of my metaphysical books is titled, "Messages From Metatron: A Course in Self-Transformation,"and resembles "A Course in Miracles." It's being published in 2020 by a large international publisher who can distribute them to a worldwide audience.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Publishing is flooded with mediocre books because of the self-publishing trend, and even best-selling authors aren't becoming rich anymore. There is too much stiff competition for the reader's dollar, and publishers can afford to be highly selective about who to publish. However, self-publishing can be lucrative if you know how to market your book because you'll keep the lion's share of the profits.
