Interview with author Karahn Washington

Book: Murphy’s Law

Q1. Hello Ma’am, can you please introduce yourself? Readers would love to know more about you.

I am Mr. Karahn Washington. I’m from the state of South Carolina. My name is pronounced like the book of Islam, not like “Karen”.

Q2. What were the key challenges you faced while writing ‘Murphy’s Law’ book?

The biggest challenge I had while writing Murphy’s Law was writing the ending. I didn’t know how to end the book. My original ending of the book had Murphy being beaten to death by David and Augustine stepping in to save the day. The book would have had an abrupt ending.

Q3. What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

The Robert Greene and Tucker Max most influenced my own writing.

Q4. What’s your favourite spot to visit in your own country? And what makes it so special to you?

Right now, my favorite spot to visit in my own country is Mount Creek Grove Nudist Resort in Cleveland, GA. It’s special to me because I am free to do what I want to do. I love to be naked. I like being in nature. Harridan’s Hideout is based on various nudist and swinger spots I’ve frequented.

Q5. Is there lots to do before you drive in and start writing a book?

Yes. Before I start writing any manuscript, I spend 30 minutes drawing pictures. I draw pictures to warm up my brain and open up my creativity. Think of it as stretching before a run.

Q6. How long did it take you to write ‘Murphy’s Law’ book?

It took me 2-3 years to write Murphy’s Law.

Q7. On what all platforms readers can find ‘Murphy’s Law’ book to buy?

Murphy’s Law is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Q8. Tell us about the process of coming up with the book cover and the title ‘Murphy’s Law’?

I did some research on trending book covers. The color pink was a trending style for book covers at the time of my research. I wanted the cover to be simple and aesthetically pleasing. I had the cover look like the real Murphy that the story is based on. A girl that I know who goes by Murphy told me that I should write a book based on her life entitled Murphy’s Law. Murphy pitched me the book. I expanded her story with my own experiences.

Q9. When writing a book how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

When writing a book, I write chapters based on need. Some of my chapters are a couple of pages. Other chapters are much longer. Knowing when to end a chapter is how I keep things fresh.

Q10. Are there any secrets from the book (that aren’t in the blurb), you can share with your readers?

The dialogues that I used for the Ace Mob in the chapter “The Meat Market” was taken from real Tweets from arguments that I had on Twitter with asexuals.

Interview with author Stephany Barcomb

Book: The Last Sane Awoken : Freedom

Q1. Hello Ma’am, can you please introduce yourself? Readers would love to know more about you.

My name is Stephany Barcomb. I was born in Puerto Rico and raised in Central Florida. Obviously, I love to write, but I also am an artist, an intermediate sewer, and love gaming and streaming casually. My lifelong dream was to write a book, then it upgraded to publish a book. My new life long goal is to make writing and drawing my work. There’s no better way to support yourself, family, and friends than doing exactly what you love most!

Q2. What were the key challenges you faced while writing ‘The Last Sane Awoken : Freedom’ book?

The book itself is different. I was worried people may find it too off putting, but after years of pushing myself, I finally got to a point of just doing what I love.

Q3. What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

The two books that stick out to me are Speak and Child Called It. While one is fiction and one is more of a biography, the impact those two books left on me was immense. I read them both in eighth grade, about 13 years old, because a teacher made us. Both focused on a different form of abuse and the survivor aspect of it. Reading such raw content helped me feel like I was not alone and the world truly was cruel to most. While it’s broken comfort, it is something we should keep bringing to light and make an active effort to better the lives of the next generation and those alive today.

Q4. What’s your favourite spot to visit in your own country? And what makes it so special to you?

Within my own state, I love going to St. Augustine. Seeing the forts, the old jail, the fountain of youth is cool, but learning about life back in the day and seeing it with your own eyes is incredible. Many forts were built in Puerto Rico, which I have yet to see, and it can feel like I’m getting a taste of home and familial history while there.
My all-time favorite place has to be New York City. Manhattan has so much to offer. I love to eat and walk, so I can walk more than 14 miles and eat samples of delicious food all day long. The diversity is beautiful and being around a mix of people is where I am most comfortable. The city never sleeps, the food is amazing, fresh M&Ms are the best, and central park is simply gorgeous.

Q5. Is there lots to do before you drive in and start writing a book?

I think this depends on the person. My inspiration comes from movie scenes, games, but mostly seeing scenes to my music or dreaming scenes up. I started by writing the scenes that came to me, even if it was not chronological. It helped me get to know the world and the story so much more than outlining ever did. Once the story began to piece together, it was easier to start the book properly and string the events together.
My sister on the other hand outlines much more. She outlines all her chapters with lots of detail and follows her guideline. If she was told to sit and write a scene out of the blue, it would be difficult. We’re all so different in how we think, so I think if anyone were to look into getting into writing, try storyboarding, character development, outline, or just start writing random stuff and see what you like!

Q6. How long did it take you to write ‘The Last Sane Awoken : Freedom’ book?

The book itself took me less than a month. At the time, that was when the first and second book were together as one. Through editing, the entire book was split into Freedom, book 1, and Hope, book 2. I have up to book 7 written, but not heavily edited, so it’s possible the series may end up much longer than I originally anticipated.

Q7. On what all platforms readers can find ‘The Last Sane Awoken : Freedom’ book to buy?

Amazon and Barnes & Nobles are my two main sources to buy the book.

Q8. Tell us about the process of coming up with the book cover and the title ‘The Last Sane Awoken : Freedom’?

The cover was drawn about 4 times by me. I tried a few different styles and none of them spoke to me, nor did I think it resembled the tone of the book exactly how I wanted. The final cover was a blend of few ideas. I wanted the main character on the cover, and I wanted this greyscale look to feel a sense of dread, a bit of horror, and a strange mix of hopelessness and ferocity.

Q9. When writing a book how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I let my characters tell me the story. Life is not predictable, so I want the book to mostly feel that way. Of course, to allow some events to happen there are small coincidences and I can see how people might say ‘But why didn’t they just do (blank)’? Think about it. When faced with real life, decisions are difficult. You do not always know what someone else is thinking or what their priorities are. Allow the characters to be themselves and there’s your story.

Q10. Are there any secrets from the book (that aren’t in the blurb), you can share with your readers?

There are many secrets in the entire series, which will be revealed in small doses. I will say this: the ancient Master Necromancers were a deadly, notorious bunch. The ancient Master Necromancers were among the first children created by the remains of Death’s flesh, the first few families of death sorcerers, necromancers. To ascend to masterhood grants the necromancer eternal life, so if they can protect their body from harm, they will live forever. Many of them are over 5,000 years old and from small tribal families. A couple of the main characters are related to a few of these ancient ones, bringing the descendants of these ancient ones much closer than they original thought.

Interview with author Peter J. Reurings

Book: Chokehold Of Darkness

Q1. Hello, can you please introduce yourself? Readers would love to know more about you.

My name is Peter J. Reurings, J Standing for Jacobus, after my late great grandmother. I am a Dutch first time author born in Vlissingen though grown up in and around the city of Deventer. I have both a form of autism and dyslexia, though neither of them will stop me from doing what I love, but a spell checker does help. Speaking of which, if you are ever worried about mispronouncing my surname, as far as I am aware it came to be due to a spelling error two hundred years ago.

Q2. What were the key challenges you faced while writing ‘Chokehold Of Darkness’ book?

There are a lot of things I could mention here, my poor English grammar skills at the start, inconsistent characters, ever changing storylines, my dyslexia, and representing difficult subjects such as female representation and other such subjects, (there are many female characters in my story, ask yourself why this world is the way it is). However, without talking spoilers, the one problem that was the hardest to fix was the whole character of Vivian. The problem was due to how my story first started, something I will no doubt speak of later. Put simply this character began as a self insert, to give such a character his own personality and let go of him was the hardest thing to do on a personal level.

Q3. What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

The easy answer here is Tolkien, even though I watched the movies first there is no denying the influence Tolkien’s world had on me. I will however acknowledge the influence of my other great love Star Wars, specially a few notable works from the old expanded universe. Joe Schreiber’s maul Lockdown was brilliant and brutal as was Michael Reaves’ Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter. That said I would be amiss if I didn’t recognize Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn trilogy, this trilogy is what got me into reading. They are not the first books I ever read, but they did cement my love for reading.

Q4. What’s your favourite spot to visit in your own country? And what makes it so special to you?

The beach in my birth town Vlissingen, it represents the past. I was orphaned at an early age so I never knew my parents, that place, that town, its where my roots lie, I could never forget that.
A spot halfway up an old stairway under the Wilhelminabrug in Deventer, it represents the present. In this city I leaned to live on my own, overcame many challenges, and started doing what I love. This spot has nothing to do with that, it is just my favorite spot in the city.
A bench along the Waal river in Nijmegen, it represents the future. I have only been there once and not more recently then the last spot, but it means a lot, and not just to me.

Q5. Is there lots to do before you drive in and start writing a book?

Of course, lots of things in fact. You need to plan out the main tread of the story, work out the characters and lore and hundreds of other things. However, most importantly of all I need to put up some good instrumental music and pick out one of the thirty-six flavors of tea I have collected so far.

Q6. How long did it take you to write ‘Chokehold Of Darkness’ book?

At least three years if not more. That said the origin of the story goes back at least fifteen years. This is all because this story began as my teenage fantasies and a bunch of storylines I used in games with two of my brothers. A character like Vivian finds its origin at least ten years ago, but that is still not as old as a character set to appear in book two. This character, whom I will call Av for now, is at least fourteen years old and has both changed a lot yet so little.

Q7. On what all platforms readers can find ‘Chokehold Of Darkness’ book to buy?

Bol.com for the Netherlands and Amazon would be the places where you can buy it for now.

Q8. Tell us about the process of coming up with the book cover and the title ‘Chokehold of Darkness’?

I always try to make people think with covers, illustrations, and titles in particular. That said there is no process here, the only thing that matters is what do you think it all means before reading, and what do you think it means after you read the book or chapter. There tends to be meaning behind everything in my work.

Q9. When writing a book how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

One way is the magic system , fundamentally its a very hard system, but its also very soft in that every mage has a unique magical ability. For the more general story I try to use a lot of different story formats and story lines, different characters with different morals and goals. I don’t tend to pay a lot of attention to tropes and cliques, I care about writing a good unique story, represent certain topics to the best of my abilities, and just write the story I want to write.

Q10. Are there any secrets from the book (that aren’t in the blurb), you can share with your readers?

Funny you should mention the blurb there. In any case if I told you it wouldn’t be a secret right. That said you should pay close attention to everything, an offhand remark might just foreshadow something or point to deeper lore, minor events and appearances might have great consequences later, and there are plots involving in the background. Trust that I will not lie to you, but know that I will mislead you. The biggest secrets might just be in plain sight and the characters might not tell you the truth, if you can find any hidden secrets try and keep them to yourself, its more fun that way right?

Chokehold Of Darkness

Interview with author Barbara Francesca Murphy

Book: Lucina’s Letters

Q1. Hello, can you please introduce yourself? Readers would love to know more about you.

My name is Barbara Francesca Murphy, I was born in Austria, moved to the States at age 16 where I graduated from high-school. Afterwards I went back to Austria to study Tourism and Hotel Management. Later on I moved to Ireland where I am still living now.

Q2. What were the key challenges you faced while writing ‘Lucina’s letters’ book?

The key challenges for me are always time, interruptions and computer issues. Not just for Lucina’s Letters, but also for my first book Second Chances and for the book I am currently writing.
There is never enough time and interruptions are plentiful. While writing my first book, I pressed a button on my laptop and the whole manuscript disappeared. Eventually it was recovered by a computer whiz. Needless to say, I am quite fond of saving my documents now.

Q3. What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

I love reading, I am always reading something and I have great admiration for many authors, e.g John Grisham, but I cannot say that any have influenced my writing. I think it is very important to develop your own style.

Q4. What’s your favorite spot to visit in your own country? And what makes it so special to you?

Favourite spots for me are always in nature. I don’t just have one particular spot but rather many that I enjoy. As long as I am in nature, mountains, walks, lakes..I am happy.

Q5. Is there lots to do before you start writing a book?

I don’t prepare much before I start writing. Usually an idea forms, a plot develops and I set about writing. I don’t have the whole book mapped out in my head. The story and characters develop as I write.

Q6. How long did it take you to write ‘Lucina’s letters’ book?

Lucina’s Letters took me around 9 months to write.

Q7. On what platforms readers can find ‘Lucina’s letters’ book to buy?

Lucina’s Letters is available on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, and other book stores.

Q8. Tell us about the process of coming up with the book cover and the title ‘Lucina’s letters’?

I wanted the book cover to feature a piece of Italy, as part of the novel is set in Italy. I chose the name Lucina’s Letters as Lucina is the matriarch of the family and the one who brings a dark secret to light. Lucina playes an essential part in this book. She writes a few letters, one for her own funeral, one to summon her family and one, the most important one and the only one that is actually detailed, to expose the families secrets.

Q9. When writing a book how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I like to write about different characters and their quirks, about real life situations and drama. I also like to have some humour in my books.

Q10. Are there any secrets from the book (that aren’t in the blurb), you can share with your readers?

The book is full of secrets but talking about them now would only spoil things. I guess you just have to read the book.

Interview with author Angela Morrell

Book: L.A. Dreams

Q1. Hello, can you please introduce yourself? Readers would love to know more about you.

Hi I am Angela Morrell. I live in Florida now but am originally from Texas and have also lived in the LA area for a few years. I love to travel and often do so around the states via RV and have been to see every major league baseball park because I’m a bit of a baseball lover. I started writing as a kid but had no encouragement so I didn’t really give it a go until later in life. This debut novel is actually a rewrite of one I started 30 years ago.

Q2. What were the key challenges you faced while writing ‘L.A. Dreams’ book?

Starting over from a finished novel many years ago was tough. I re-read it and knew it needed a total re-work, but I still loved my characters and think I did a much better job at bringing them to life this time around. I work a full ltime job so I really only have time to write during down time and days off.

Q3. What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

Janet Evanovich – I love how she writes simply and to the point. She’s not afraid to be bold and put herself out there. I admire that.

Q4. What’s your favourite spot to visit in your own country? And what makes it so special to you?

Las Vegas and New York City. I love to be in places that have a pulse 24/7 and a variety of exciting things to do so that every day can be different no matter how many times you visit.

Q5. Is there lots to do before you drive in and start writing a book?

No, it formulates in the back of my mind as I go about my daily life then I write notes about the beginning, middle, end and character traits that I put together later.

Q6. How long did it take you to write ‘L.A. Dreams’ book?

30 years or 1 year depending on how you look at it.

Q7. On what all platforms readers can find ‘L.A. Dreams’ book to buy?

As of right now Amazon, Kindle and will have Audible version available by mid June.

Q8. Tell us about the process of coming up with the book cover and the title ‘L.A. Dreams’?

The cover…when I think of palm trees I think of when I originally moved to LA and I was awestruck by the variety of palm trees and beautiful beaches. And for the title: Cory, (the main character in the novel) dreamt of success and stardom in LA since childhood and I guess I secretly do too in some form or fashion.

Q9. When writing a book how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I tend to stay away from formula writing and instead have quite the genre bend to most of my writing. It’s honestly a little bit difficult to put me in a single category as a writer. I have yet to decide if that is a good or a bad thing. As of now, it simply is and I’m going to let it be.

Q10. Are there any secrets from the book (that aren’t in the blurb), you can share with your readers?

This book was originally written in 1993 and I think it was kind of an outlet for my huge crush on Diana Ross. This was years before I was ready to admit that I might like women. There are hidden Easter Eggs (little things that are associated with her) throughout the story.

Interview with author Ethan Arabov

Book: Siara And The Seashell

Q1. Could you please introduce yourself to the readers?

Hi, my name is Ethan Arabov, I am a singer/songwriter/author based in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
I was born and raised in Queens, NY.
I’ve been writing for a couple of years now but my first book ‘Truthful Tammy’ happened by accident. Trying to get the ‘creative juices’ flowing for a song I was trying to write; I had just started typing away. When it was done, I had sent it to my sister who suggested I make it rhyme, so I did.

Q2. Could you please tell readers about your latest book?

My Latest book is called ‘Siara and the Seashell’. It is a story about a fish who would hide in     its shell afraid of being judged or how the (sea) world would treat it. Thinking it was not good enough to be seen but little did it know how beautiful it was once it came out of its shell.

Q3. How many books have you written so far?

I have written quite a few that are still being worked on but I have three that are currently published on amazon.

Q4. What inspires your book cover design for your latest book “Siara and the seashell”?

I wanted to show that Siara was surrounded by her friends knowing she is being supported through her journey.

Q5. Are there characters in your books that have similarities with you or people you know?

I can definitely relate to Siara as well as the friends. It has taken me some time to break out of my own shell and have been there for friends going through the same.

Q6. What helps you relax while writing?

I love having some inspiring instrumental music, a cozy corner helps as well!

Q7. What would you tell an author that wants to publish his first book?

Go for it! I have had a few people ask me to help them out and I have pointed them in the right direction in terms of where to start. If someone has a motivational story to share that can change a person’s life then do it!

Q8. Who are you when you’re not writing?

That’s a good question! I like to say I wear many hats. I sing, write, own a bit of real estate, I have my own jewelry line as well. A dog dad to two white huskies and enjoying the beauty that life has to offer.

Interview with author Julian Jackson

Book: Rise

Q1. Hello, can you please introduce yourself? Readers would love to know more about you.

My name is Julian Jackson, an electrical engineer and a Savannah State University alumnus. I grew up in Miami, Fl.

Q2. What were the key challenges you faced while writing ‘Rise’ book?

Some of the key challenges I faced when writing Rise was the time management of it all. I was in school while writing it as well as working a full-time job. So, finding time to write this and getting my creativity to flow was challenging.

Q3. What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

I’m a big manga reader so authors like Eiichiro Oda really influenced my writing style.

Q4. What’s your favorite spot to visit in your own country? And what makes it so special to you?

If I had to pick, I would say Sunny Isles Beach in Aventura, Fl. I wasn’t a big beach goer when I was younger but when I got older and left my hometown. I grew fonder of what I left behind.

Q5. Is there lots to do before you drive in and start writing a book?

Yes, there is. Organizing an idea, researching that idea, putting together an outline, securing your copyright. All are important in writing a story, keeping it fluid, and keeping it yours.

Q6. How long did it take you to write ‘Rise’ book?

It took almost 3 years to finish and, in some ways, it’s still not at its finished product.

Q7. On what all platforms readers can find ‘Rise’ book to buy?

For the time being you can find it on Amazon in hard copy only.

Q8. Tell us about the process of coming up with the book cover and the title ‘Rise’?

I actually commissioned an artist Reese Royce to do my cover based on who the characters were in the book. The title Rise just came from the characters prevailing from hardship RISE out of the ashes of their former life.

Q9. When writing a book how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I try and bounce my ideas off my brother to keep it interesting for myself because he’ll bounce ideas right back to me. It gives me another perspective

Q10. Are there any secrets from the book (that aren’t in the blurb), you can share with your readers?

Certain details from the last chapters of the book set up the sequel, however the ending will not.

Interview with author Caleb Thornton

Book: Irreversible

Q1. Could you please tell readers about your latest book?

Yes! “Irreversible” is about a day in the life of an impulsive serial killer. He’s determined that every man he’s been with and will continue to come in contact within the future will never know how to love him the way that he ultimately wants to be loved. He was conditioned early on to think about love in a fixed way. In addition to this, he’s also dealing with something very sinister inside that he’s never properly dealt with. Killing men has turned into a coping mechanism for him.

Q2. Main character of your book Irreversible is sure that love doesn’t like him. Do you believe in love?

Haha! I do believe in love. I do. However, I think my standards and dating ideology are out of this world. A lot of the stuff that I believe in could be seen in the medieval times, or maybe even in the fifties. I want a love that resembles the American dream. You know, the husband, the white picket fence, a dog. Perhaps maybe a farm. I find that I’m not really made for hook-up culture or anything that involves sexual exploration. I must have an emotional bond with someone for anything to go anywhere. I’m a very emotional guy.

Q3. Between your plot and your characters, which is essential to you? Why?

Well, the plot is always essential no matter what. I think mapping out the plot is basically mapping out what the story is and how it comes together. On the other hand, I will say that characters are also very important to me. Every main character in my works has some part of me in them. For example, the main character of this story is a man named Frank Johnson. Frank is a serial killer. He kills men because they don’t know how to love him, or they do things that hurt him in some ways or another. I kill off men in my mind so that way I don’t have to carry the burden that they left with me. It’s sort of a coping mechanism that I use. It’s very effective.

Q4. How many books have you written so far?

I’ve completely written three books so far. Two short stories, and one poetry book. The fourth book is almost done, and I’m proud to call this one a book because it meets the length requirement and I’ve also been working on it for two years now.

Q5. What inspires your book cover design for your latest book “Irreversible”?

I wanted the book cover to depict me killing off the men in my life that have hurt me, and also the men in the main character’s life, which is Frank. The cover sort of acts as a metaphor for me, but it’s also how the main character see’s the men in his life. He sees them as useless. He sees them as garbage, hence the trash bag that I’m carrying.

Q6. What helps you relax while writing?

I have to turn everything off, even the air conditioner. It has to be complete silence, or else I’ll just sit with my legs crossed staring at my laptop. I don’t know. It’s kind of strange.

Q7. What would you tell an author that wants to publish his first book?

I would tell them to not be afraid to make mistakes, nothing comes easy, and that consistency is key.

Q8. Who are you when you’re not writing?

I can’t tell you that! It’s a secret!

Interview with author Drew Antony Piercey

Book: Chewie The Pup

Q1. Please introduce yourself so that the readers will get to know you better.

Hi My name is Drew Piercey, originally from Saint Neots and now living in County Durham. I’ve always wanted to write children’s books, but never thought this to be achievable. I put the dream away until 2 years ago when I was having problems with my mental health. I decided to enjoy life more and change the way I perceived myself and the world around me. My nephew is obsessed with dinosaurs, and I love to rhyme, so I made a book about them and thought this ‘This isn’t awful’. So I decided to go for it. I want my books to be enjoyed as any author does, but the key for me is getting them away from computer screens. This is more in the sense of moderation as it would be hypocritical of me otherwise. I also hope to inspire future artists, whether that be in the writing or Toria Ashplant’s wonderful illustrations.

Q2. What is your inspiration behind your book “Chewie The Pup”?

My inspiration was mainly from my puppy Chewbacca. He inspired the story and I saw it as a great way to teach key values in a short, yet sweet rhyming style that would both hold the readers attention and help the lesson to be taught.

Q3. When did you realize you want to be an author of Children’s Book?

When I was in year 6 at school we had a competition. This was to write a poem and have it published. My poem was chosen among others but I remember this being the first time I was truly proud of myself. I loved that feeling and it stuck with me. I’m glad I finally found the courage to do so.

Q4. Are you planning to release your next book soon?

My original book ‘My Rhyming Adventure: Dinosaurs’ is now being published (After initially self-publishing) and should be out soon. Chewie the pup will also return.

Q5. For which age group your books are suitable?

I would say Chewie the pup is from 3 to 6 years old but I’m new to the game and have no children of my own…… So what do I know!

Q6. What is your favorite Quote?

“There is no success without failure”

Q7. What do you like the most about your country?

Not sure. I guess in the world we live in, it’s certainly better to be in a more enlightened country however there’s still many steps to go before the united kingdom becomes the ideal fully inclusive place it should be.

Q8. What suggestion you want to give to parents of little readers regarding a reading habit?

I mean I’m no parent so I’ll just say directly to the reader “You are great, keep it up”.

Q9. What does literary success look like to you?

People reading my books or creating their own if they think they can do better.

Q10. Lastly, who is your inspiration in life and why?

This is a hard question. One that I don’t have a clear answer for. I would say everyone. Its easy to see the world only through your own eyes and assume you’re in the center of it. But everyday we see videos on our phones of people doing wonderful things. Everyday I’m reminded that there is good in the world.

Interview with author Pamela Rae Hughey

Q1. Please introduce yourself so that the readers will get to know you better.

My name is Pamela Rae Hughey, you can call me Pam. I’m a wife, mother of two, and Family Nurse Practitioner. I’m passionate about all things health including spiritual and emotional health.

Q2. What is your inspiration behind your book “Gone But Never Forgotten”?

Well, I was inspired by a couple of things. First, my children and their many questions about their grandmother who has passed away. Secondly, the state of our world and all the wonderful people we have lost over the past 2 years. It’s been hard to understand not only for the adults but for our curious children as well.

Q3. When did you realize you want to be an author of Children’s Book?

I would say it’s always been a distant dream, but I never acted upon it until having children myself. We read so many books and have so many of our own adventures. It just started to become easy to create stories around their activities.

Q4. Are you planning to release your next book soon?

Not a picture book but a coloring book is in the works!

Q5. For which age group your books are suitable?

Ages 3-6

Q6. What is your favorite Quote?

I have a few but this one helps me stay motivated. “The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today”. -H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Q7. What do you like the most about your country?

I appreciate the different cultures, diversity, and freedom.

Q8. What suggestion do you want to give to parents of little readers regarding a reading habit?

I would say just try to read something to them every day. Even if it’s telling stories from memorization like “the 3 little pigs” before naptime. This time will be so special to the kids and help build their little imaginations.

Q9. What does literary success look like to you?

Being forth book content that encourages mental, physical, and emotional growth and support for all ages as we all travel this road called life.

Q10. Lastly, who is your inspiration in life and why?

My mother. She is always pushing forward no matter what obstacles come her way.
