Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I have written 5 books, including my most recent release, Cross Academy. Unfortunately I haven’t released the other books, I just didn’t ‘feel the vibe’ with those.
Gosh, it’s hard to talk about yourself. Besides writing, I love Jesus, my family, action-packed anime and video games.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Cross Academy is my latest *finished* book but I’m always working on something new. What inspired Cross Academy? My faith and some crazy ideas I had as a kid. I got a lot of inspiration from my family as well, but most everything I write is heavily influenced by my faith.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not at all. I write when I’m inspired and I don’t when I’m not.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
To be honest, I can’t really pick one. I’m influenced by everything I read and I’m inspired by every book on every shelf. Because each one represents the result of hard work and a dream that was never abandoned.
What are you working on now?
Part II to Cross Academy and another super secret piece you can expect to see soon.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Twitter, my blog The Rebel Christian, and word of mouth. My church members are my biggest fans, they will most definitely spread the word for me!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Never, ever, ever give up. It’s only worth it if you have to fight for it.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Never give up. Best three words ever spoken.
What are you reading now?
I’m always reading the Holy Bible and a random fanfiction. Recently I’ve been taking a trip down memory lane with Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Improving my skills and writing the next book. I just can’t decide which idea to work on after I’m finished with my current one.
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?
I only need one. The Holy Bible.
