Q4. What’s your favorite spot to visit in your own country? And what makes it so special to you?
St. Augustine, Pensacola, and Key West. These are three of the 10 places in Florida with Lighthouses. These structures are not only mystical but very important. In the book I call them the traffic lights of the sea. They are reminder that I never have to feel lost at the sea of my own thoughts. My light within will always guide me from the danger. Or guide me safely home, when I’ve lost my way. I’ve became aware of self throughout my interactions. The ability to tap back into my experiences.

Making me the lighthouse of my power.

My book writing experience was divinely orchestrated. I had been told I should write a book. Yet I had no intentions on doing so. It was the best opportunity I could give myself..

Q8. Tell us about the process of coming up with the book cover and the title ‘Finding Sierra’ ?
Its funny that you would ask this question because the final to get to the final book cover was definitely a process I think it was a total of five covers that I went back-and-forth with the first one my publishing company came up with I had a big smile on my face and I didn’t want to deceive the reader to thinking that the book was only about happy moments so I detoured away from it actually for several reasons. The other reason was I was being complacent with myself and I didn’t want to draw direct attention to me as far as the title of the book finding Ciara it almost was elementary because I was truly discovering new parts of me that I did not even know existed and that the revealing of who I was becoming
