Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m from New York City and have been living in London for more than 20 years. I am known as The Dream Decipherer and have written two books on poetry and a third book to accompany my dream interpretation course.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is Wide Awake in Your Dreams: Listening to the Thoughts of Your Heart and is based on my journey back to myself and claiming my birthright as a fifth generation “Dreamer” -born with the gift of dream interpretation
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not really, but my laptop conveniently freezes when I need to rewrite something!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations with God series – I once teased him that I put him on the NYT bestsellers list, I gave away so many copies of his book. I even gave three copies away in one day….!
What are you working on now?
My book launch is my priority at the moment – 10 days of celebrations beginning on 9 July. I’m also working on a new edition of my book on my flower essence range, Spirit of Makasutu Essences
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Word of mouth – people who know me and my work are my best supporters!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Find people/groups who have been there and done it all to support you — so you don’t make silly mistakes that cost time,money and energy
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
You cannot serve two masters — the penny drop when a spiritual entrepreneur told me this…I had been dividing my attention and missing out on what was my true mission in life – and suffering the consequences as a result
What are you reading now?
Books on marketing books(!), self-development books, editing and updating my previous books
What’s next for you as a writer?
My launch in July is my primary concern at the moment; but I have another book I need to write (was supposed to write before this one!) and three translations (French, Portuguese and Spanish) of my book are coming out later this summer, as well as audio versions
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?
Transformation Stories – Inspirational stories of people who found their WHY
Conversations with God – whether you believe or not, very thought provoking
Healing & Wholeness – the role of dreams in healing
My autobiography (once written!) – it will give me the opportunity to enjoy my life all over again — without the pain!
