Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a thinker and a lover of chocolate but not chocolate ice cream. I didn't choose to write it chose me. I would have chosen something different because writing and succeeding in writing is the most challenging thing I have done in my life. I am currently working on my 8th novel.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Echo. It was inspired by me reflecting on my life. The premise is if you could pinpoint where your life went wrong and change it would you.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Every book is different but with this book I have made a makeshift white board.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I would say Shakespeare.
What are you working on now?
I am working on a rewrite of a book I wrote in 2015. The title is YODO: You Only Die Once.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am currently trying to figure that out. I had a PR person last year but I didn't feel like there was any progress so now I am trying all the legitimate sites that I come across.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don't be discouraged.
You can't write to please everyone just write.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don't take rejection personally just use it as fuel.
What are you reading now?
Nothing. I don't read while I'm writing for fear of the author's work bleeding into my own.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Nothing interesting really. Just writing, running , baking then rinse and repeat.
What is your favorite book of all time?
Rainbow Brite. My mom bought me a lot of books but this one I remember distinctively.
