What made you decide to become an author?
I was writing, for myself, simply trying to heal my own soul after my marriage broke up, and I posted it on my “myspace” blog and the rest is history.

I love the connections that I have made with readers and other authors.

I’m always participating in book drives and fundraisers for different causes.

Give one tip you would give new authors?
Research everything you can on your subject, your target audience, and how to reach them.

What is the biggest lesson you've learned since becoming an author?
The biggest lesson that I’ve learned since becoming an author is that it takes lots of money to promote properly, and in the beginning you’ll spend more than you make. But, the struggle is so worth it.

What is the one thing that irks you about the literary industry?
People who have been in the industry for a while, looking down upon those who aren’t famous yet. Everyone should remember that we all had t o start at the bottom. Some authors simply have the resources to make it to the top much sooner than others.
