Interview with Jonathan Desaussure

What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is really a series of three books entitled Determined to Win. It was inspired by events that happened to my wife and I in a very difficult time in our lives. During that time, we lost so many friends, and saw so many people die, who were not as bad off health wise as my wife. We survived and then we began to thrive after conquering the challenge. Determined to Win is a message to all in fictional form that we all have it within us the power to conquer seemingly insurmountable odds, if we just become resilient. By the way, that's the title of volume two of the series,
Describe your desk
Are you serious? Someone wants to know that? Okay, it's neat and orderly. Affirmations are pinned to the walls near me. I have bookshelves in reach with books pertaining to my trade and success psychology. There is a note pad and pen always by the mouse, always, for taking notes on what I'm reading or topics I'm discussing on the phone. A to-do list is always on my PC screen.
When did you first start writing?
Five years ago.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
To know that I am finding a creative way to entertain and or educate my audience about something that they may use now in life, or help them later.
What do your fans mean to you?
They are like my children in a sense. Here is what I mean. Parents want to make their children happy, teach them, and nurture them when they are together. I hope to achieve the same thing with my fans in person and or in my work,
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My dream.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
With my wife, helping someone in serious need, or training for fitness in martial arts.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. The story was terrible, although I thought It was pretty good for a brand new writer at the time. What is most memorable is the fact that I was so excited about finishing the work, I submitted my rough draft instead of my "polished" draft. Oh the horror. I'm smarter now.
