Tell us a little bit about yourself, your hobbies and interests.

I love to read, write, and share my work with others. I enjoy long hikes and cycling.

When and why did you start writing books?

I have always kept a journal, it helped me deal with a chaotic home situation. Eventually, I decided to share my feelings in the hopes of helping others who may be in a similar situation.

What made you decide to tackle writing as a career?

Writing is such an enjoyable art, it does not feel like work.

Which one of your books or characters is your favourite?

"Can I Come HOME Now?" is my favorite book as it was very cathartic to reveal myself as I did in my story.

Which one of your books was the hardest to write and stretched you the most as a writer?

My latest book "Seasons of the Heart" was a new venture for me, as I have not written a lot of poetry. However I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will write another poetry book soon.
