This is my motto, and I have lived by it ever since I realized there is more in life for me: more things to learn, places to see, people to meet, and love to spread out into the world.
My two main passions are the English language and seeing people who are happy, loved, and loving—people who are living the love life they most certainly deserve. I’ve been fascinated by romantic relationships for as long as I can remember. I love being in love, as well as listening to other people’s love stories.
As an adult, I’ve had my fair share of heartache. In spite of this, I don’t consider my experiences to be bad, hurtful, or something to be ashamed of.
Quite the contrary: they have taught me invaluable lessons that helped me transform my love life from the inside out. I’ve attracted a wonderful partner as a result.
What I like most about myself is my openness, empathy, compassion, and the easiness I feel whenever I communicate with people. I definitely call myself a people-person, but I am also fond of spending quality time on my own.
I love walking in nature, spending time by the sea or pool, reading, listening to people share valuable lessons, and learning new things.
My most valuable treasures are the people I love, my health, my sense of humor, and the riches inside my heart.
What inspires you to write?
My main sources of inspiration for my nonfiction books are my own life experiences in the field of romantic relationships, as well as my journey towards becoming a more evolved person.
I also love talking to people about their love lives, the lessons they have been able to learn, and how how they view intimate relationships with another human being.
At the same time, I am certain that creating the best possible relationship with our own self is the first and most important step anyone of us needs to take. All the other relationships are just the direct result of it.
Tell us about your writing process.
The first book I have ever written has been easy, but the second and the third, not so much. It must be that my writing is, hopefully, improving and this means the process becomes more elaborate.
I believe that writing consistently, on a daily basis, is vitally important for any author. I have discovered that writing is just like any other job: I need to get up, sit in front of my computer, and start writing. Even if sometimes I don’t feel particulalry inspired to write, I know that finishing a book requires hard work, persistence, and determination.
I always create a rather elaborate outline of the book before starting the actual work. And I always self-edit my books twice before sending them to my editor.
What advice would you give other writers?
If you feel you have a message to share with the world, just go ahead and write it. You don’t have to be perfect to start; you can even write in a language that is not your first one, on condition you have an editor who is a native speaker, and your language skills are very good.
It’s also extremely important to have a group, or at least one person, who could act as your accountability partner to keep you on track with the results you set out to achieve.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I have read and studied a lot about self-publishing and decided to take this route, mainly because you can send your books into the world faster and it is much cheaper.
However, you are going to need professional help with editing your book, designing the cover, and formatting it for mobile devices, in case you decide to publish an eBook.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think that more and more people will start reading on mobile devices, although printed books will still have their fans.
