Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a dedicated wife and mother who has devoted my life to Christ and has a passion for helping others gain a closer relationship with Abba. I’m a licensed Minister two times over and an ordained Elder. I have written six Christian books and have a non-profit for youth.
I have been writing since I was 8 years old, mainly poetry and short stories. I was born and raised in New Orleans.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I believe that God desires marriages to be healthy so I was led to write a book to women inspiring them to strive for healthy marriages where God is at the center of the relationship. That way we can have less heartbreaks and more stable homes.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Sometimes I have to sit in a quiet room before starting. I usually write with pen first before typing it up. Strangely, it has to be a gel pen.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
My number one book would be the Bible, but I also love books by Priscilla Shirer, Lisa Harper, T. D. Jakes and John Maxwell.
What are you working on now?
Once RUTH READY is published and available, I’m going to re-print my other books that are out of print. I have learned a lot through self-publishing and need to keep my other books alive.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Social media has been a great outlet. I’m still learning about the promoting side.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t think to hard about it. Research as much as you can about publishing and marketing. Make sure you put yourself before the people and be creative, very creative!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Simply put, “Don’t Quit”
What are you reading now?
Believe it or not I’m reading a book titled, President of the whole 7th grade class by Sherri Winston
What’s next for you as a writer?
I have been contemplating a novel so that will probably be my next project.
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?
1. Bible (I will need to stay sane)
2. Any Time, Any Place (That’s my first book of prayers)
3. Survival Hacks
4. I would need something funny, but I’m not sure what book I would choose for that
