What inspires you to write?
The thing that inspires me to write are questions people dare not ask. I like researching truths that are accepted norms and challenging them in my writing not to disprove them but to make sure those truths are accurate. But if a topic is not truth then as a writer I must bring the light the truth and facts based on research.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
TD Jakes, Gordon Dalbey, J, Keith Miller
Tell us about your writing process.
I'm a seat of your pant writer. As a non-fiction writer I focus on subjects that generate conversation and I sometimes take on subject that make people twist and turn in the thoughts. Tackling religious taboo subjects seems to me to be a hot area that can rattle folks.
What advice would you give other writers?
Keep honing your craft and never give up. Sometimes it's good to write for other publications that are looking for writers. This helps your skills down the road.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
After many rejections from agents and publishing companies, I was getting nowhere. So I looked into the vast area of self-publishing companies and decided to go that route. A bit of caution thought, you must do you homework with self-publishing companies. And I would stay away from co-publishing agreements. Their contracts are not in the best interest on the author.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
My opinion about the future of publishing is that writers are increasingly cutting out the middle man by self-publishing. Big publishing companies are out of touch. There are many books that could be block busters but large companies are blind the what really going on in the book business.
What genres do you write?: theology, non-fiction, religious
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
