Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I ah self-published four books, three of them are being published in print and audio, while I am reworking my full-length novel for release. After this is updated, I will be working on the sequel. I am a blogger and a podcaster as well.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Stories Outside the Box: an Electric Eclectic Book is the latest book that I republished. These stories were inspired in many different ways. Some of them came to me in dreams, while others were inspired by writing prompts and aspects of my life.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
When I get stuck, I go out on the front porch and listen to the windchimes while I am praying. Usually, when I’m working on a story, I can see the story unfolding like an image in ,y mind, or the windchimes themselves will sing inspiration to me. If I’m away from my computer, I will write using the notes app on my phone.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Karen Kingsbury, Janette Oke, Robin Lee Hatcher and Annie Acorn, to name a few.
What are you working on now?
As I stated above, I am in the middle of reworking A Journey of Faith, and I’ve finished the first round of revisions for the sequel called Journey to the Mountaintop.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
blog interviews, being guests on podcasts, and engaging with other writers, who are also readers on twitter.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t let people tell you how to write your book. Learn all you can from the experts, but you are the one who must figure out what works best for you
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Write your heart out, but don’t let your heart get broken if your work is rejected.
What are you reading now?

What’s next for you as a writer?
publishing more books, continuing to grow my audience through my blog and my podcast, and once my book has been releaced again/updated, schedule book tours next year.
