Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am an artist, music producer, and an author (which you already know since you are reading this now). I have traveled many states across country and plan on traveling across the world next. So far, I have only debuted my first book, Year of the Vegan, which is an essentials guide for all vegans. However, I plan on releasing more books of the common topic, controversial and informative.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Year of the Vegan, that is my first and latest book. Being vegan for three years, my life has changed dramatically. The inspiration for creating this book really came from my own experiences with veganism, things I wish I would’ve known in the beginning, and all the positive impacts that come along with it. I do make it clear that this is not always the lifestyle for everyone, but there are other ways we can contribute to the earth and ourselves.
What are you working on now?
As of now, I’ve been really inspired by books based on controversial topics such as gender, race, politics etc. I do love visuals, so I’m working towards painting my own visuals for my next book!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
You know, I really don’t have a method for this. If someone is interested in my book because of the cover or what it’s about, then it’s for them. And if they aren’t interested, that’s okay too.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
I am a fairly new author myself, but from my experience I will say that trust your writing style and your process. It’s YOUR own process and no one else.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
“Thoughts become things,” period.
What are you reading now?
Right now, I have started a reading challenge to read 50 books in one year! So far I have just finished Piecing Me Together by Renée Watson and plan on moving on to Paulo Coelho books next.
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?
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
1984 by George Orwell
Harry Potter: Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
