Spiritual / Self Help
How did you come to choose it?
I had gone through a fast and rough spiritual awakening to what everything is at the core of it. Meeting my spirit guides, they wanted me to put myself out there to help others, it just feels right.
Why does it appeal to you?
I have done a 180 in terms of my life and how I live, I really want to help people in all areas. To let them know, they are not alone, and you never have to take your own life or resort to the end game. There is ALWAYS a way out of the pain, darkness to a better life, no matter what the issue is. I want to give people the facts, the straight answers
What do you find most challenging about the writing process, and how do you deal with it?
Well for me it it just seems to flow. I write about what I have experienced and bring it to written word. The hardest part so far has been facing myself, putting myself out there, the good, bad and ugly. It’s a risk, but I know it will help others. People will be able to relate and be able to pull themselves up. I never run out of things to write about, so so far it has been a true blessing. The hardest part was finding a publisher. That’s for any writer is tough, so I’m grateful and thankful for that.
When and where do you do your writing?
I normally start in the morning, and sometimes I can write for 12 hours, it just flows. Then other days, a just try and get a chapter done a day. I know getting The Soul Knows out and the Emergency Guide to an Awakening / Ascension ( will be out soon) Those I worked seven days a week for at least 8 hours a day the last month. It can be tough, but doing what you love, its never work. I do like to write sitting on my couch in silence but I sometimes will sit outside and write, all at my home in Phoenix AZ. But when it hits me, I always carry my table to write on when I am on the move.
What have you learned about promoting your books?
That it is tough and a lot of hard work. You don’t just write a book and kick your feet up. You have to be out there all the time, meeting people and getting it out there. You have to be tough and not let no’s get in your way. Be yourself, because your not just promoting a book, your promoting yourself, so just always being me.
What are you most proud of as a writer? This book, The Soul knows. I have written a couple other books, but for me this is my joy. Because I put things in it, that really not a lot of people knew, or only close family and friends’. It made me come to accept myself even more in just writing it. To work through things, things I didn’t want to even go back too. So it shows, if you work on you, love yourself truly at the core of who you are, anything is possible.
If you could have dinner with any writer, living or dead, who would it be and what would you talk about?
There is a lot of people, but I guess where I am now, Wayne Dyer for sure. What wouldn’t we talk about. The true meaning of joy and how it can change lives, the act of forgiveness and how it can not only help you feel better, but can actually make you healthier. Those a couple of things, but I really love his work and what he was telling everyone. I would also ask him about some tips on public speaking for sure.
