What inspires you to write?
Passion to inspire, transform lives and bring my readers into a living relationship with their loving creator. I aim to help people live the most successful and fulfilling life possible – their ideal life. it's a calling. Long ago, God revealed to my wife and me that we'd reach more people through our writing than seminars, teaching and training. It made sense, because our teaching sessions came with notes so people would be able to retain better and be able read the material over and over to keep learning. Written words endure for centuries especially if they make a positive difference.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
I read very, very widely and in many genres for study, research, to be informed, for entertainment. There are so many excellent books. Without reservation, the book that most influenced my writing is the bible – it's any serious biblical writer’s primary source with an extraordinary range of information. Being a prolific reader and researcher I also have a library containing a wealth of bible-based and other subjects – histories, cultures, science, the mind. We also have all our theology text books from our university days. To add to that, I have masses of writing my partner and I have done over the years and I get surprised by what’s been written before.
Tell us about your writing process.
I do a lot of very, very in-depth research, so one book can take a long time. What I write has to be accurate and sound. I'm systematic and stay open to inspiration. I never get writer’s block. This is why… I have multiple writing, painting, creative projects and when I don’t know how I want to say something, I don’t force it. I go and cook, walk, chat, watch a show. I switch to something else. Then, bubble, bubble, I sense a theme or idea bubbling up and I don’t delay, I start to put it down. Sometimes, when I can feel there’s something there but it’s not ready to go down in writing, I leave it and allow my mind to work on it in the background.
What advice would you give other writers?
Give your best with a view to adding value to each reader’s life. Be positive and provide solutions. Ensure that it’s accurate and properly researched. Write, rewrite, condense, check for typos more than once. I always have an expert in my field read the draft and comment. People judge a book by its cover so make sure it’s done well and the content is well-formatted.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Lots of research, taking in the experienced advice of established authors who’d been there, and weighing up the pros and cons of each. Ultimately, self-publishing won – you hold full control over your creations and their future.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The future’s bright – we now have paper books, digital books, audio books, books adapted to movies, graphic novels. Books are part of life and so is book publishing. There’s always something new to publish and millions of readers – so, give them your best.
