Interview with Candida Akins

What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are most important to me! My art is a reflection of who I am and I write to help others heal and strive.
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on a stand alone book about my experience with Post-partum Cardiomyopathy (A rare form of heart disease due to pregnancy). In addition, I am working on the upcoming series for "How To Be A Healthy Twin Mommy"
Who are your favorite authors?
I am moved and inspired by J.K. Rowling! She inspires me in so many ways. I am constantly reminding myself of her story when I think that things aren't looking so well.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Each day is a new day to achieve another goal and write another chapter.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a mother of two sets of twins and a wife to a wonderful husband. I love my family!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I started writing five years ago when I worked as a Correctional Officer.
What is your writing process?
I am a freelance writer. Sometimes I write based on things that I hear and see.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I always use my cell phone as it most convenient and easily accessible.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Describe your desk
Sometimes my desk is "sitting in my bed."
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small, rural town. There are not a lot of opportunities within the city of Madison, but there are huge possibilities.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing non-stop January 1, 2017.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am a mother of two sets of twins! I know what it is like to raise four kids and I know what it takes to stay healthy in the process.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I am original and I have confidence in myself. What I publish is more than likely inspired by my personal experiences.

No one knows the feeling of having twins unless they’ve had twins! I have two sets of twins, eleven and seven years old. I have never known the feeling of doing one thing at a time when it comes down to changing diapers, fixing bottles, and giving bubble baths! Being told that you’re expecting twins is a day that will always remain in your memory, even when they’re grown.
