1) What are some of the most valuable lessons you have learned from writing?
I have learned a variety of things from writing: But the most important things fall between the lines of patience, persistence, and faith. I am one of the most impatient people you’ll meet but something about writing makes me a more patient person and I’ve learned to stay dedicated even when I have other things going on in my life. Lastly, I learned to believe in my work because if I don’t nobody will!
2) Please tell our readers something about yourself.
I am from Arizona. I was raised by a single mother and I have one younger brother. I was the one who gave my mother the headaches. My brother is the saint! **laughs**
3) What advice would you give someone who is thinking about writing a book?
How long can a reply be? **laughs** Gosh, where do I begin? Well, first of all, do your research. I don’t mean just going on Google and typing in “How do I publish a book?” I mean researching as in networking with fellow writers and authors. While Google is amazing and is resourceful for various things in the publishing process, it can’t offer you authentic personal relationships or connections with actual authors. Find one you can relate to or in your genre, ask them if you can have their advice and ask them questions while you’re on your way. You’d be surprised how much feedback you’ll get and how sweet they are! Hint: You can always reach out to me. Next, set a budget. Get the numbers straight and all your ducks in a row when it comes to finances. Leave some cushion for extra expenses that may pop-up because you don’t want to hold up your process because you ran out of funding.
