Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
This is my first book.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Postcards That Never Arrived is the name of my first book. It was inspired by travel and stories from those I met along the way. You'd be surprised at what others have lived through.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
hmmm. I'd imagine all writing habits are unusual. I usually like to have a candle lit as i write and listen to music from artists such as 6lack, Lido, Francis and The Lights and Jaden Smith.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
The only author I believe has influenced me would be John Keats. His work absolutely stopped me in my tracks. His poem Ode On A Grecian Urn begins "Thou still unravished bride of quietness, Thou foster-child of silence and slow time"
What are you working on now?
I am now working on publishing my second book which is a more romance based poetry book.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I still have not found one, if anyone has any suggestions let me know. I use my social media and that is pretty much it.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
My only advice would be to write whats real. Be brutally honest because there is someone somewhere going through the same thing. Your voice may be the one that saves them,
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
"Once, I saw a bee drown in honey, and I understood." – Nikos Kazantzakis
What are you reading now?
I'm currently reading A Doubters Almanac by Ethan Canin and Citizen by Claudia Rankine.
Both books have been outstanding so far.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I can't give all of that away at this moment. There is a lot coming though.
What is your favorite book of all time?
I always say Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. As a young black male that book helped shape me because I was able to see alot of myself in it. Flaws and all
