What inspires you to write?
I love to write, as a child, I would write in my diaries into a preteen, I would write in my notebooks/ journals & now at 28 I use my notes app on my phone. I knew that I would someday convert my writing into my memoir and hopefully inspire others who experienced similar situations to not give up. But, I also wanted to make a difference with my writing and not just only share my story but to spread awareness, educate, and prevent certain situations as well.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
My favorite authors are my childhood books that I loved; Ann M. Martin, Beverly Cleary, Francine Pascal, Rachel Renee Russell, Jeff Kienney, Barbara Park, and much much more.
Tell us about your writing process.
My writing is straight forward, I write at night because that is when I'm able to concentrate, but if an idea comes to mind during the day I will quickly write it down so I won't forget than transfer it later. I enjoy writing with music on real low and a candle lite.
What advice would you give other writers?
To research your audience and genre. To have a plan rather it is to self or traditional publishing …have a plan. Research the publishing company as well and any website that you want to sell your book. Put together a checklist for yourself to stay up to date. Use your social media and create your platform. Lastly, HAVE FUN, and know you will make mistake but you are in control.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Early in my writing, I was searching for an agent and publishing company. I found a few and we spoke about the process, I am a person that put 1000% into everything I do and I like to be hands-on with my projects and my book would be no different when the agent told me I may have to change a few things I knew maybe traditionally publishing was not for me. I wanted full control over the illustration, marketing, promo, and everything that comes with publishing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think because there is so much information online and the mass supportive indie author community that publishing will take a major shift. Publishing a book is now a business and a brand that it is no longer write a manuscript, get a check cut, and that's it.
