Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I love to write stories with my daughter. I have such a great time thinking about the impossible and then putting it down on paper. I've written over 22 books and I have another 10 waiting to be released.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The title is Anaiah's Road Trip. Traveling all over the world with my daughter inspired this book. We had such a blast in different places.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Yes, I like to write to all different types of music and I need to be alone when in my studio while doing so. I don't like to be bothered. One time I was up for 72 hours.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I'm really inspired by Walt Disney and Sam Walton. I love the way their image has been maintained throughout their lifetime and after.
What are you working on now?
I'm working on turning my children's books into animation films.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
While I've noticed that having my own talk show is the best way. I get to talk about all my events as much as I want and people don't mind. DarshaunMcAway.com is the best site ever.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
My advice to any author is to talk about your book like it's the last thing to sell on the earth. The world is waiting on you so go for it. No one can hold you back. Be sure of yourself and don't ever take a NO personal. Keep writing the best that you can and one day it will pay off.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Keep writing and never give up on yourself.
What are you reading now?
Surprisingly, I'm reading fiances books. It's important to maintain money.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Hopefully sitting down with NETFLIX and working out a deal that both of us can prosper off of.
What is your favorite book of all time?
By far the best book I've ever read has to be Atlas Shrugged.
