Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are the reason I write. Through my stories of hope, inspiration, and overcoming, I want to encourage others who may still be in the midst of their struggles. I keep my novels short so that the fans can read, share, and inspire others.
What are you working on next?
My next novel is Almost Doesn't Count. It will be available November 2014. I am also working on a non-fiction project entitled "The Surrendered Soul: Aligning the Five Parts of Your Soul with the Will of God." People struggle every day with past hurts and disappointments, some of which were committed by others. This book will help begin the healing process in our mind, will, emotions, memory, and imagination.
