Every writer has their own idea of what a successful career in writing is, what does success in writing look like to you?

Success in writing to me means being acknowledged for your work. I think every author who truly writes from their heart wants someone to tell them how much their book meant to them or how it influenced their life. So success to me is being able to reach the audience you set out to engage.

If you could do any job in the world what would you do?

I would LOVE to travel the world listening to tales and myths from various cultures and complying them together to create great books.

Why do you write?

I write to channel my creativity. I write to share the stories in my mind. I write to influence lives.

How important are friends in your life?

My friendships are one of the most important aspects of my life. Most of my friends I have known for an average of 9 years so the memories and

What is your favorite quality about yourself?

I love how observant I am. This is my favorite quality about myself because it allows me to analyze my environments. It also helps to create stories.

What is your least favorite quality about yourself?

The least favorite quality about myself is that I procrastinate a lot. Although I am working on improving it I have been able to learn how to work under pressure.

How do you think people perceive writers?

I think the oversaturation of the market has led people to think that writers are less important than previous years. The open market in publishing was both a blessing and a curse. Now a days anyone can say they are a writer and produce less than subpar work when years ago being a writer was an elite profession.

What would you love to produce in your life?

I would love to produce a legacy that transcends time, race, and gender. I would love to produce a book that people will love and respect decades in the future.

What is your favorite color?


What is your favorite food?

My favorite type of food is seafood. Living in Houston I have the pleasure of tasting some great seafood. I’m visiting New Orleans soon and I can’t wait because I’m told has the best seafood dishes.

What social issues interest you the most?

Poverty. I think that a lot of people can overcome their economic status if they are educated on how the system work as well as learn how to decipher between a need and a want. I think cooperative economics is a great way for us to recover from this depression.

How often do you write? And when do you write?

I write everyday normally in the daytime. I am trying to get on a more structured writing routine so that I can focus on producing quality books in a reasonable amount of time.

How often do you write? And when do you write?

What keeps me going is the end result. As I am writing or if I get frustrated I always think of the light at the end of the tunnel. Nothing worth it comes easy.
