Has anyone ever made a suggestion for one of your stories that you liked so much, you altered said story to include it?
Yes indeed, I have had so many individuals family and friends that have influenced me and have had ideas that I bounced off of them. I am an observer and I am very much in tune with great ideas that continues to stimulate my creativity. When people share their experiences I use it as a message that takes it own path as its fosters my writing.
Does what you’re writing at any given time ever feature in your dreams?
My writings or ideas tend to come to me in my dreams. Its as if they speak to me and I am able to envision what is on the page. My characters talk to me and tell me what and how to interact with the audience.
What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
The best compliment I have ever received was someone telling me how worthy I am. I am the one who never feels that my accomplishments are “enough” or they are just moments that are “all in a days work.” It allowed me to understand that I need to take time really live in the moment and admire the accomplishments I have.
What is one question you’ve always wanted to be asked in an interview?
What do you want your legacy to be and how do you want your successors to uphold it.
