An Interview:

What is the first book that made you fall in love? 
It's really hard to say because I have read several books over the years. Many of them that contain black historical figures who I idolize and admired deeply. Because if it wasn't for their encourage and strength we wouldn't be where we are today, or fighting for what we deserve.

What is the first book that made you cry? 
I have read several books that has touch my heart over the years. But the main three I would say is the Medgar Evers story and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X Biography. Because each one of these men are unique and highly sophisticated individuals who dedicated their lives for justice and peace not only for American blacks but the entire human race.

What did you do with your first check from your books? 
I didn't do nothing special I just deposited my check into my savings account as I do with all my checks. Because every little bit helps especially since I plan on buying a home with my parents so we all can live comfortable and enjoy each other for many years to come.

What would you choose as your spirit animal? 
To be perfectly honest I never gave that much thought but if I had to choose then I would say a Siberian Tiger. Because they are powerful animals and extremely rare and beautiful. Plus as a kid the Tiger has always been my favorite animal on land.

What was one of the most surprising things you learnt while creating your books? 
I learned that writing your book is probably the most easiest aspect of the entire process. Especially when you already are very creatively minded, but the real challenge truly begins when you're out there trying to Market and promote yourself. Because it's nothing like trying to get exposure for your personal accomplishment and product.

Do you hide any secrets in your books that only a few people will find? 
No, for the most part I try to be as open and transparent as possible. Because my books are inspired by personal experiences but they are not based on fact. My short fiction novels have a certain Flair that pretty much anyone can relate to if they keep an open mind and a open heart.

If you could tell your younger self anything what would it be? 
I would tell my younger self to continue to have a good heart. But at the same time be mindful of those you extend your hand to. Because there's nothing wrong with giving to those that are less fortunate, but make sure those same people will look out for you if and when the time comes. Because not everyone who says they love you genuinely loves  you and always remember that love is an action and not so much a word.

What are the most unethical practices in the publishing industry? 
Now I cant speak on traditional publishing, but in regards of self publishing I can speak on personal experiences. For example my first self Publishing Company is name Author House publishing. They took a lot of my money and gave so many empty promises and very limited exposure and now Eber and Wein publishing who I've been dealing with for quite some time is showing similar traits such as poor exposure,  communication and dedication. Whether self publishing or traditional do your research and take your time because your voice matters and should be heard.
