Yeah, they say you write what you know. More than me being abused I saw people close to me going through the same thing and I think that’s just as bad because as child you feel powerless to stop any of it from having. But I feel blessed to have come out of it and to be able to help other young people going through it if only by example.
Forever My Lady started out as a script didn’t it? Which do you prefer writing novels or writing screenplays?
Yes, originally it was a screenplay and only out of frustration did I turn to writing novels. Now, I feel blessed because I found my calling, writing novels.
What writers do you look up to?
I look up to many writers big and small, prolific writers and people who of course are the mega-bestselling authors as well.
What mistakes do you see other writers who are trying to break in doing?
I think they don’t take their time to make sure there books are truly ready to be published. They are so much in a rush and desperation to land an agent they don’t go beyond their friends and family for honest feedback and that’s a big mistake.
