Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m the Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer of CreateWriteNow.com where I mentor health conscious people in using therapeutic journaling (Journaling for the Health Of It) to heal the issues in their tissues and grow and transform their life. I’ve authored 20+ self-paced journaling course eWorkbooks and the multi award-winning bestseller Journaling Power: How To Create The Happy, Healthy Life You Want To Live (ebook, paperback, audiobook).
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I just published Heal Your Self With Journaling Power, the second book in the Journaling Power trilogy. My goal for Journaling Power Book #1 was to share my story (and lots of journaling exercises) and introduce people to journaling power. In Journaling Power Book #2 I share 10 Journaling Journeys (with journaling exercises) of journalers who use journaling in many different wats to master life challenges.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
No. I’m very organized, and write my next book every morning Monday through Friday.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Julia Cameron (The Artist’s Way) and Dennis Palumbo (Writing From The Inside Out).
What are you working on now?
The third book in the Journaling Power Trilogy: Create Self-Love Write Now: Journaling Power Book. I have the front and back cover drafted and then it’s on the structure and the writing.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Email blasts through my website and email blasts to my target audience like WOW-WomenOnWriting, Spirituality and Health Magazine, and Body/Mind/Spirit sites. Email blasts work best for me.
Do you have any advice for new authors?

What is the best advice you have ever heard?
