Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am the co-creator of the Billboard hit music producers “Made by Monkeys”. I have written songs that appear on television, movies and international radio. Inspired to help others reach their goals, I now focus my time on writing books instead of composing songs.
I have recently released my first book, “Smart Guide to Stop Using Stupid Words!” on November 11th 2018. I am currently writing my second book.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest and first book is called, “Smart Guide to Stop Using Stupid Words!” 30-Minute Ride to a Successful, Peaceful Mind. I wrote this book with the intention of helping people to live better lives and be more compassionate towards themselves and others. The goal is to introduce people to ideas and concepts that will lead them to appreciate their thoughts and use of language in a new way.”
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I write books in the same way I write songs. I quiet my mind and listen to the “nothing” so that inspiration may find me.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
My greatest influences are John Kehoe, Tony Robbins, Dale Carnegie, David Hawkins, Dr. Wayne Dyer. John Kehoe’s book, “Mind Power” was given to me by my grandmother when I was very young. This book opened eyes to the nature of reality.
What are you working on now?
I am presently working on my new book, ” Note to Higher Self”, which is about music and spirituality. It is written with the intention of helping people improve their lives by interpreting and understanding the world through music. I will feature many accomplished musicians and create a compilation of their wisdom to share with readers.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am humbly still learning every day how to best reach my target audience. Facebook has been a great place to start.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Finish your book. Write every day if only for 30 minutes. If you are inspired write for hours until you cannot write one more word.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Persistence is the key to success. Don’t be afraid to fail.
What are you reading now?
I am re-reading “The Mysticism of Sound and Music”, by Hazrat Inayat Khan. I am also reading “The Code of the Extraordinary Mind” by Vishen L.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I am learning every day how to better promote my book, as well as learning how to turn my book into an online course. I am exploring every possible way to get my message out to the world and help as many people as possible live better lives.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
I would bring “The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook”, “The Law of Success” Napolean Hill and “Everyone Poops”.
