What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing is the discovering something new about the expression of self.
What do you read for pleasure?
When not researching, I find a lot of reading revolves around tech and entertainment. Whether online or hardcopy magazine, I always find intriguing information.

The Alchemist - Paulo Coehlo
Conversations With God - Neale Donald Walsch
Conversations With God - Neale Donald Walsch
Think and Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill
Said The Shotgun To The Head - Saul Williams

All of these books in some way have provided direction for me in life and in business. They are manuals for success, at least in my opinion.
Describe your desk
My desk is anywhere I can prop up my laptop or grab a notebook.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My goto e-reading device would have to be my iPad.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the state of New Jersey. I did however, move around a lot. In my travels, in my possession was always something to read and/or write. I believe I developed my love for writing as a means to express my travels in the form of words.
When did you first start writing?
Great question. I became fond of writing by reading greeting cards. I loved the way they expressed sentiment in such a concise manner. Whether I believed I would still continue to until this day, I'm not sure. However, greeting cards then impressed upon me something serious and I wanted to with my words, impress upon others.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I always found inspiration provides a much needed boost to take your mindset to another level. I wanted to with my co-author and business partner create a handy piece that allowed anyone to get mind recharged at a moment's notice.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. Where writing showed itself to be very therapeutic for me, and many a time has become something that many have been able to identify with. I'm elated that thoughts are able to resonate with others.
What are you working on next?
Next up on the creative plate, is an autobiography of the heart. Written in the form of poetry accompanied by some short narrative, my next piece will move people without touching them.
Who are your favorite authors?
Napoleon Hill, Neale Donald Walsch, Khalil Gibran, and Saul Williams to name several.
