Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My successful writing style comes from my failures, I failed in high school( I failed twice English and literature) I failed to go to university and I failed at business but the beautiful thing about my ugly failure in high school is that it made possible the contents for my first book (The Art of Poetry “The color of change”) a book that exposed myself and my family inadvertently maybe it was purposely, I cant be sure, what I am sure about is that I spoke about how my mother gave birth to me at age 15, how my pseudo father abused and abandon my mother before I was born, how the only role models I got for father figures were low life scums and murders, and how I watched my mother being abused as a child and was too afraid to do anything and instead of carry a load of books, pencils etc. this was the burden I had on my back everyday when I went to school, with that said I took full responsibility for my failures in school, my father, my mother or any other character that I may have vilified or sanctified in the “Art of Poetry” was not responsible for my failure in school.
My failure to attend a university was responsible for my developing a passion for reading. Reading allowed me to find many role models such as Fyodor Dostoevsky, Charles Bukowski, Shakespeare, Robert Greene, Malcolm Gladwell, Malcolm x, Plato, and many others. My third failure created the experience for my second book “How You Can Turn Shit TO Sugar “13 sacred steps of alchemy” I told my story how I developed a resilient character, how I saw an opportunity where may see failure in a nutshell how I made a disadvantage into an advantage. I am an author that had had many failures in life but each failure taught me something success would not be able to.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
“How You Can Turn Shit TO Sugar “13 sacred steps of alchemy” was inspired by the beauty concealed in ugly failures. I want to share my story of how I turned disadvantages into opportunities, and inspire persons to not give up because of failures, in fact, they should continue after failures, if I a man that taught myself how to read and write, failed English, and Literature twice and didn’t attend any university have written two published books with 7 more being edited to publish they can do anything with their failures.
