1. Why do you write? Or how did you start writing? I write cause it's something I enjoy doing. And I use it as away to express myself. I always use it as a way to get things off my mind. And keep my creative juices flowing. I started writing when I was 14/15 yrs. old. I had to write a poem for an class assignment. Everybody kept on telling me how talented I was even though it took me awhile to relize it.
2.Can you tell us a little about your book? Forbidden Fruits features poems and thoughts that I have been writing since I was little. I never ment for these poems to get out. I wrote it as away to remember things when I get older. But after I went through my journals and notebooks. I noticed thst thier was something special about som of the peoms.
3.What is your publication story, or how did you get published? I sent my manuscripts to my agent and had my agent go out and send the manuscript to diffrent publishers and the rest is history.
4. Do you have any advice for other writers? Study your craft be original. Learn the business cause the more you know about the inner working of the business. The longer of a career you going to have. And study the work of other authors that you admire.
5.Who do you like better, Batman or Indiana Jones? Batman but I prefer spiderman
