Interview with Shawn Christopher

Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors are Zane, Eric Jerome Dickey, Omar Tyree, and so many others. I enjoy reading and having my mind taken to a place i'd never expect. These authors do an excellent job of that.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is named "Jaded" and was written as a spin-off to my novel "Homie. Lover. Friend." Jaded was written during a rough patch in a relationship and was meant to show the other side of love. I spent six months writing it and was mostly isolated with just my thoughts. The book has a dark undertone but those who have read it love the mystery and rawness behind the character's hardships.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When i'm not writing, I spend my time working as a Patient Care Advocate Manager at a mental hospital. I studied counseling for years because it is a passion of mine so i'm thankful to be able to assist others. I also like to workout, listen to music, and go out....sometimes lol
What motivated you to become an indie author?
One day I just started and never looked back. I originally wrote poetry which I include here and there in some of my books.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is being able to paint a picture in a person's mind and tell them a great story. I love hearing what others think of my material as well. I am always learning and striving to be better so conversations about my writing and other books thrills me.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean so much to me because I honestly wouldn't have a platform without them. They are the ones that tell me if my work is great and show up to my book signings. I love my fans and wouldn't trade them for anything :)
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was in the 3rd grade about being an actor in Hollywood. It was a massive book with drawings and cool pictures in it. Wish I still had it though...
What is your writing process?
I'm a free-form writer. Once I get done speaking through the audience as the character I am embodying, I go back and edit the mess.
What do you read for pleasure?
Lots of books, Zane, Omar Tyree, Eric Jerome Dickey, etc...I also like self-help such as Iyanla Vanzant's "In The Meantime" books.
What are you working on next?
.....If I told you, I'd have to hurt you lol
