Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
The Financial Plan for Tip Makers and Everyday People was not intended to be a book, originally. I was on a journey to gain control of my finances. I began taking credit counseling, and wealth management classes. The first thing I learned was from a man named George Thompson. He taught me that my income should always be higher than my expenses. Up until that point, my income always matched my expenses. That advice, in addition to the classes I took, helped me to create a formula for tip makers. Prior to that, I Googled and searched for a financial plan that would help manage finances as unstable as mine. I did not find one. I knew other people, such as co-workers and friends, who struggled as well. I showed them the formula, and they all reported to me how much money they were saving. I would often hear the words, "I have no idea where this money is coming from." I initially created this plan for tip makers. However, when I showed the formula to people on salary & hourly wage, I discovered they benefit from it as well. They told me how much it helped them, and how thankful they were. I wanted to help others, the way I helped them. That's when the book was born. It is my passion to help others and I want to help as many as I can.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story, I ever wrote was in second grade. I don't remember it verbatim, because I was seven years old. I remember it being about prehistoric times and the sky was one big cloud. One day a volcano erupted and separated the sky. That year, my teacher submitted it into a short story contest and I won first place. I guess there was a writer in me all along. I believe my mom has that story and the award somewhere. Lol, as mom's tend to do.
